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.
Like to welcome everyone to my new web site. If you read the blog it takes you here automatically. Now, lets get with the fishing report for the Truckee River. This last week the river was pretty much on hit. If you got out, you were stoked in a big way. We got dumped on up here the week before and after turned about 50 degrees all week.
We finally got completely dumped on in the greater Lake Tahoe-Truckee-Reno area. It rained hard for three days here in the Hirsh. The Truckee River did get up to around 1200 cubes or so, but has crested and is on the way down. This was much needed water to help fill up Prosser, Boca, and Stampede reservoirs where much of our water for the Truckee River comes from.
The outlook is good for the Truckee River in the greater Truckee-Tahoe-Reno area. We were in dire straights last week, we got some rain/snow, the river actually got blown out it, came down, and the fishing has remained good. The storm door is open. We are to get more rain/snow this weekend. That is about the best news we can have. It feels more like winter again here too. Highs struggling to get out of the mid 30′s in Truckee, and low 40′s in Reno.
Doug O and I will be holding a Pyramid Lake Clinic at Pyramid Lake in Nevada on March 1st, and March 22nd. If you have not heard of Pyramid Lake, or always guessed how to fish it, this is the time to do it. Pyramid is the place right now to tangle with a monsta trout. You can travel the Word and not find the fish we have in our own backyard. We will cover rods, lines, rigs and flies, along with beaches to fish during various weather conditions.
