Truckee River Fly Fishing Report

Arrow Thin Left Icon

Matt Koles, Gilligan’s Guide Service

Like most of Northern California we got hit pretty good with mostly rain, but some snow, mainly above 8000k here in the Lake Tahoe- Truckee- Reno area this last weekend. The Truckee River rose up to almost 2000 cfs, (been over a year since we’ve seen flows that high) and is now dropping as fast as it came up. We need snow not rain, but at this point, we’ll take anything we can get, and we got a lot of moisture. Lake Tahoe rose a bit. Stampede and Boca Reservoirs came up quite a bit, in fact, I was surprised to see how much Boca rose in just a few days.

The Truckee River will fish well this week. Been since December since we’ve had a good flush. The river ALWAYS fishes good after one of these events. 590 cfs here in the Hirsch this morning, good to go in my opinion. Little higher and dirty down in the desert, but probably will clear in a few more days. I can’t emphasize how good it is for the river to get a good flush like that. It will breath some new life into the river for a while. I’ll be at Pyramid today and the river again later in the week.

Remember, my good deal rates are in effect until the end of this month and no more good deals until this next winter. Also, clinic dates will be up soon.
