Big Truckee River Fishing Report

Big Truckee River - Truckee, CA (Nevada County)

by Mountain Hardware & Sports
(530) 587–4844

Low flows through Glenshire to Boca outflow and good flows and better temps from Boca to Stateline. With the current flows concentrate your efforts in the deeper pools in the AM, move into the faster seams and riffles into the afternoon and then back into the pools in the evening when trout are feeding on the surface for Yellow Sallies, Caddis, and PED's. From Glenshire stretch down to Boca outflow flows are low and trout will be selective but this area will be good to throw dropper rigs. Streamers have been effective in Sculpin imitations, Golden Stones, all stages of Caddis, Little Yellow Stoneflies, and sporadic hatches PMD's. Don't discount Crayfish patterns as these can be effective also with temps being up, they're in molt now and are an easy target for large trout! On another note let’s all remember proper ethics and C&R techniques as the water temps have risen. Let’s not play trout to exhaustion and handle minimally or not at all. Remember, there will be days where you'll do great and the next you'll get your you know what handed to you, it's the Truckee. To learn the river exponentially, hire one of our local guides. It's worth the money if you fish this occasionally or want to learn it's secrets! Great list of local guides on bottom of page.
