Truckee River Fly Fishing Report

Arrow Thin Left Icon

Matt Heron Reports on 1.14.2015

Fishing on both rivers has continued to improve quite a bit since frigid temps slammed us on News Years weekend. Although it’s still cold with consistent snow here and there, we’ve had a lot of days in the 30s.

This has been key, and these are the days you want to be on the water. The midge hatches have been down right amazing this year, and if you’re really lucky you might find a few noses on top.

Not surprisingly, if the midge thing isn’t working fish small baetis in olive, black or brown. Also try a mix of other small, dark bugs and even a streamer worked slow near the bottom.

More importantly than fly selection, fish the right water. Fish are in their winter holding lies, concentrate on the slow side of seams in water with some depth.
On top of having several openings this month, meet us at the ISE in Sacramento next week. We’ll have a booth on the casting pond, as well as doing Truckee and casting presentations with several of our guides and instructors.
