Truckee River Fly Fishing Report

Arrow Thin Left Icon

Matt Koles reports on 1.22.19

Huge snows this last week.

Not a lot here in the Hirsch, but tons up top. I think we’re just above average on snowpack now. Average is a lot in Tahoe.

The Truckee River didn’t get that high here, but blew out down in Nevada. It dropped fast after the rain turned to snow. More precip today, rain here, snow up top. Same deal. Kinda funny how everyone blew this winter off in November. We’re having a pretty damn good winter.

So flows are actually down in CA, as flows have been stopped completely out of Boca since last week. Flows are up in Nevada.

This will change today…Always take a look at flows, scroll down to you get to Pyramid and Winnemucca Lakes Basin. Look at the gauge at Truckee nr Truckee, Boca, Mogul NV, and Vista NV. That will give you a good idea on what’s going on all over the river. Trouts have polarized glasses on all the time. They don’t give 2 shits how muddy the water is. Just go fish.

High pressure should settle in this week with a warm up. I imagine the fishing to be pretty good.
