Truckee River Fly Fishing Report May 21 2024

Great Spring weather and good fishing on the Truckee River.

Perfect frigging weather. Springs the best. Usually it don’t stop snowing until June, but this years been pretty nice.

Flows are slowly coming down. Around 1000 cfs here in Hirschdale, and 1,300 cfs down lower. Not that big really.

Clarity is coming back in shape too. Was never really bad the last few weeks, but much clearer now. My best advise is to lay off the worms and put the nymphs back on. Crazy to think Summer is almost here. I’ll try to get some clinics lined up soon. 

Still look for soft water. That’s the key. They are not in that main current. They are spread out, but not in current.
