Truckee River Fly Fishing Report January 20 2023

Nevada Truckee River Brown Trout

Welp, that was fun. Pretty much 10 weeks of snow. When we get it, we get it. We got pounded. The Truckee River is in great shape, and will be in great shape this summer. The MJO looks to be in a positive phase for Ca come February. Feb could be a stormy month too. Enjoy the sunshine while it lasts.

For now, we have great winter fishing on the Truckee River. Great flows. It’s cold though, and looks to be cold for at least the next 5 days. Single digits to barely hitting the 30’s in Truckee. We were -5 here in Hirschdale the other morning. Good old fashioned Truckee Winter.

This week, wait until she warms up a bit. Reno, and out out East on the lower river will be warmer. Not much, but enough maybe to get a few more grabs. The Streamer fishing has been pretty good down in there. Best in about 3 years. The dry fly fishing should get going soon down in Nevada. Probably one more week. Oh yeah.

Got spots for the steamer clinic on the 28th.
