Truckee River Fly Fishing Report

Arrow Thin Left Icon

Matt “Gilligan” Koles reports on 3.23.17

Big, high flows and big fish.

Flows are up over 3,500 here in the Hirsch. Big pumping flows. Surprisingly the fishing is pretty good. Hard to believe, but if you can find some soft water you should find some fish.

Water is pumping out if everything. All the lakes and res’s are dumping their water, creeks are high and fast, and just water coming out of everywhere. Water should come down a little bit this week with the colder temps.

We’ve been getting into them. Mainly on the nymph rig. Stones, crays, worms, eggs. The big water flies. Tight line nymphing, and under the bobber. The streamer deal has slowed down a bit for me. Water is pretty cold, and they just haven’t wanted to chase their food. Trouts are off guard in these high flows. They are eating everything that floats in front of them, getting big and fat.

Some weather this week again. I’m sure we’ll see some more snow this spring. Kinda nice how warm the weather has been the last few weeks.
