Fishing Report

Truckee River Fly Fishing Report

Matt Koles, Gilligan’s Guide Service

Finally, I feel as if the Truckee River is coming back into it’s own again. She’s starting to fish like the old river we love and remember. I thought we’d take a big hit from the low water event that happened late summer and last fall, but I think we came out all right in most sections of the river. Sure, a few fish didn’t make it, but overall the river...

Truckee River Fly Fishing Report

Matt Koles, Gilligan’s Guide Service

This has been a long time coming. Over two months since I’ve done a fishing report on the Truckee River. That was the last day I guided the river, it was marginal then, and that was in California. In Nevada the water was staggering low over the last three months, some fished it, most didn’t. If you were one that didn’t fish the river during those hard times we...
