Boca Reservoir Fishing Report

Boca Reservoir - Truckee, CA

(530) 587–4844

Parts of Boca may not be accessible due to recent snow! Lake is at 30% capacity and came up slightly with the rain event we experienced on Sunday. Lots of ice around dam area and some coves but not close to being safe yet! Launching of boats larger than small 17 footers is done as the boat launch is out of the water and the shoreline being like quicksand! If you have to launch please use caution as some have gotten axle deep in the soft stuff! Report of a stocking of Cutthroat a couple of weeks ago as one of my reps saw a stocking truck dumping fish here! Shore fishing has been sporadic at best as this lake hasn't received a stocking of fish this year except for the Cuttie stocking. Always good fishing here for Browns, Rainbows, and even some Macks around the inlet and by the dam, but you'll have to work hard for them! Bait of choice is an inflated nightcrawler right now and any lure that will represent small chubs, minnows, and kokanee such as a Kastmaster, Sierra Spoons, Rapalas, or Large Roostertails.

Lake is at 64% capacity. The lake level came up quite a bit from the run-off due to the significant weather event that passed through the Sierras recently. Some Big Macks being caught recently and those fish have been taken on light Kokanee tackle! When this happens you know they're looking for food and this are getting tough! Throw everything you have at the trout now, ie: powerbait, nightcrawlers, and salmon eggs and combinations of these baits, spoons and spinners...... Read More
