Truckee River Fly Fishing Report

Jon Baiocchi / Baiocchi’s Troutfitters Report on 2.10.2016

Since the weather was so warm and sunny I decided to pay the “Dean of Guides” Frank Pisciotta a visit on Monday in the greater Truckee area. We fished a little in the afternoon, and then checked up on some spots, doing a little scouting and a general analysis of the current conditions. It was beautiful out with decent fishing to make it extra special. I went solo on Tuesday and had another good session fishing both crap water and popular water. Lots of lead and perfect drifts with and without the indo nymphing did well for me. I waited for some heads to show, praying actually, but nothing coming up to the top. Browns and rainbows ran 15-18 inches, with a few putting on some aerial displays. Top flies were Lance’s X-May #18 in olive, and worms. I had a great time and it reminded me of my youth fishing the Truckee area with my dad, and when I fished the river on my own as resident in the mid 80’s. Best trip in a long time. Stoked. Flows are good, water is clear, and the fish are cooperating – Get some.
