After about a week hiatus from the Truckee River mainly from the nasty weather we’ve had here in Truckee-Tahoe, finally got back after it the last few days. Wind and snow is cool in the fall and winter, but in the spring it just doesn’t feel right, and all last week was pretty nasty.
Finally some winter weather and much needed snow and rain for the Lake Tahoe-Truckee-Reno area. I haven’t been on the river at all in over a week, mainly due to the weather, wind was the main reason, but also because Pyramid Lake has been fishing so well.
Big changes in the weather this week with a return of winter to the Lake Tahoe-Truckee-Reno area on the Truckee River. Looks like we’ll get a pretty good snow event tonight into Thursday. Snow will fall high, but we will take anything we can get here in Tahoe, and what we might get looks pretty impressive.
First day of spring, though its been spring since about mid-February in Lake Tahoe-Truckee-Reno. Mild weather continues to dominate the pattern here on the Truckee River. We have had some cold nights, and it continues to be cold at night, but daytime highs are in the 50′s in Truckee, and 60′s in Reno.
Fishing has remained good on the Truckee River in Lake Tahoe-Truckee-Reno on the Truckee River. Warm air temps and warming water temps have sparked some pretty good activity. The weather looks pretty stable going into this week, so fishing should remain good.
Fishing continues to be good and only getting better on the Truckee River in the Lake Tahoe-Truckee-Reno area. Blue wing olives are out in force on the lower sections of river sparking a lot of activity. One can go out now and not only get them on nymphs, but also on dries.
Storms systems moving into the Lake Tahoe-Truckee-Reno area. We picked up a foot overnight on the summit with more on the way Friday. Good, good news for the Truckee River watershed. Flows have come up to about 420 cubes here in the Hirsch, and they will get higher with the next system.
Warm above average temps at least through the beginning of next week on the Truckee River in the greater Lake Tahoe-Truckee-Reno area. Fishing has been descent all over the river, both states. Good news, the spring blue wings are out in force on the lower sections of river.
