Truckee River Fishing Report
I've had the pleasure of spending a bunch of time on the Truckee River lately and the fishing hasn't been half bad. Mornings have been best and we have been finding fish willing to eat dries (elk hair caddis #14-16, Turks Tarantulas #10-12, and Stimulators #8-12) and dry/droppers (same dries as before...zebra copper johns #18, copper head midges #18, red copper johns #18, bh prince nymps #18-20) in the pocket water. Most of the fish have been in thw 10-12" range but we have seen a few larger fish in the 16-20" class. The afternoons have been pretty slow and the water has been a bit warm with very sporadic caddis hatches in the evening.
Fall is right around the corner and the fishing is going to be spectacular!!
