TRUCKEE RIVER FLY FISHING – LATEST REPORTS
Great early Fall fishing on the Truckee River. Little cooler weather now and it's definitely Fall in the mountains. Truckee River trout are pretty active. Remember though, Truckee River trout are still, well, Truckee River trout, and that means you still have to work for them. We have great flows for this time of year. Nice and big below the inflow of the Little Truckee River at Boca. Starting to see some more bugs like blue wing olives. Yep, that's Fall. Nymphing is good, and the streamer fishing is pocking up. It's just about brown trout time. I have some spots open for the clinic on Sunday October 8th.
Streamers and Euro combined on Sunday October 8th Sorry, I know it's football day, but the weather should be nice and a great time to learn some new stuff. I'll combine, streamers and euro nymphing with the same rig. A hybrid approach. A great way to fish the Truckee River. For more info and to get in on the action, give a call. 775.351.6665. We'll meet off the Hirschdale exit #194, at 9:00. We'll go for 5-6hrs, and it'll be in Hirschdale. Cost will be $300.
Very good late Summer early Fall fishing on the Truckee River. Weather and the fishing is near perfect. Just gonna get better as we get closer to Fall. 500 cfs here in Hirschdale, and about the same all the way down river. Great late Summer flows. We had a great Euro Nymphing Clinic. if you have not been introduced to the tight line game, it's the best way to shake a trouts hand around here. Young and old came, and 5 out of 6 guys caught fish. Pretty good. Crayfish and stones and smaller mayflies all getting it done nymphing right now. Like I say, just gonna be getting better. Daytime highs are gonna mellow out into the 60's this week. Oh yeah, gets me excited. I have 3 spots left for October 7th's, Hybrid, Euro/ Streamer Clinic.
Warming trend on the Truckee River. Pretty perfect days. Sunny and warm during the day, cold at night. Damn near perfect weather, and the niners looking good. The Truckee River is fishing great everywhere you go. From Truckee down in through Reno and even out East on the lower river. Numbers wise, this is a good time. You can rack up the dinks and maybe get a big boy, or gal, here and there. Trouts are eating crayfish, yes, still...This is the time of year you see tons of baby dads all over. Also, smaller mayflies, and golden stones- big nocturnal stones. Big and small would be my rig. Look for the streamer fishing to get going soon. Bright sun is not the best for streamer fishing. Evening fishing should be get going too. Look for some decent dry fly fishing, now until early Winter. I have 2 spots open for next Saturdays clinic.
What a stark contrast compared to last year on the Truckee River. This time last year is was exceptionally hot. We left to the coast because of the smoke and the heat. It's rained for the last 3 days. Of course, that makes the fishing good. Pretty great fishing at times actually. Usually, I'm begging for Fall to arrive right now. Kinda wishing we had some more Summer right now. Don't get me wrong, I love the precip, but El Niño is on the way. We could have a good 7 months of Winter coming. Trouts are in every type of water. Banks, frog water, and fast water. Early, fish slower water, later, fish faster water. Change your rigs, and change the water you're fishing througout the day. You may get them on streamers, dries, and nymphs. The whole Truckee River is fishing good. From below the town of Truckee, to East of Reno. Don't forget, I have a few Clinic dates coming up. Cheers.
