Truckee River Fly Fishing Report

Arrow Thin Left Icon

Matt Koles Reports on 12.8.2016

Not too much going on since last report.

Things will change this week as an AR is aimed at Nor Cal, lots of rain and snow expected. Good news for both Pyramid Lake in Nevada, and on the Truckee River. Looks like the storm door could remain open for the rest of the month. We need it. Look for the Truckee River to start pumping after this weekend. 200 right now or so and should be up to over 1000 by the weekend, I imagine. Good for the fishing actually, and good of the streamer fishing. Yes, I’m serious. So the Truckee River will be like fishing 2 different rivers. Low winter flows now, and higher winter flows, this weekend. Look for the river to stay high through December and even all winter if we continue getting storms. This is when you get the big winter fish during these peak flow times when the river starts dropping. Kinda like winter steelhead fishing.

Pyramid Lake has been good if you hit it during the low light periods of the day. That will change with a steady stream of low pressures moving in. It can be lights out at times, and it will be very good out there the next few weeks.

Short post, but a new report after the storms move through and we see what happens with flows on the river.
