Truckee River Fly Fishing Report

Arrow Thin Left Icon
Matt Koles, Gilligan’s Guide Service

Flows have been cut in half on the Truckee River coming out of Boca. Thank God, because there was no way with Boca being as low as it is that we would have any water left come this sumer. We probably still won’t anyway, have any water left later this summer, but at least the river may have some water in it for a while.

That being said the river is fishing well. It is about 220 cfs here in Hirschdale, higher towards state line and much lower through Reno. It’s about what it was a month ago before they staring releasing water out of Boca.

Flows on the Little Truckee River are good too. 88cfs and holding. Fishing is good out there as well.

Rain and snow next week…Lets hope.

Remember the general trout opener is next Saturday and that will open everything else up. Not much water anywhere else in Tahoe, but lakes like Milton and all that will be open.

Fishmas Eve is this next Friday night. All proceeds go to our local Trout Unlimited chapter #103. Come on out.
