The Truckee is still very low but fishable for sure. There are two main sections that seem to be fishing fairly well right now. The canyon section in California and the stretch of river East of Reno. The good news is there have been some fish caught which means that we did not lose all the fish this summer to extreme water temperatures and low flows. We are going to have to get used to less fish in the river for a while but it is looking better. The best flows right now are East of Reno where the river is flowing over 100 CFS. The California side is much lower but there is plenty of fishable water. Nymphing with Baetis, Midges and small Winter Stoneflies are all worth a shot. The water is low and “High Sticking” is a great way to go but indicator rigs can also be used. There is a sporadic Baetis hatch east of town if you are out there on a cloudy day. Flows are: Town of Truckee 39 CFS, Boca Bridge 73 CFS, Farad 92 CFS, Reno 54 CFS and Vista 113 CFS.
