Truckee River Fly Fishing Report

Arrow Thin Left Icon

Matt Koles reports on 11.1.18

Pretty good solid fishing on the Truckee River.

I think we had a great Advanced Fly Fishing Clinic this weekend. Most of the dudes have been out with me before, so not sure who much they learned, but we did do the clinic deep on the NV side, so at least it was new water. I have changed a few different leader rigs and things so…That, plus grilled ducks and IPA’s for lunch, how can you go wrong. Nothing bad with having a good time. Great group of guys, so thank you, very grateful to have you as friends and guests.

Again, this report is the Nevada side of things, as I haven’t done a trip around here in about a month:

Mainly streamer fishing, and it has been good at times. The nymphing is good too, kinda ridiculous good if you’re in to that kind of thing, ha ha. Worms, baetis, eggs, baby crayfish, kinda what they eat down there this time of year. We mostly fish form the raft down there, but if you wade fish, cover some water. Fish count ain’t like pre-drought, but it’s getting there. Salad days will be next year, or about 4 yrs post drought. So still not a ton of fish, but enough fish and big fish to keep you stoked all day long.

November should be a better month than October in Nevada. Just been too warm most of the time except those first couple weeks of the month. Summers and falls are just warmer these days in Tahoe and especially Reno.
