Truckee River Fishing Report 7-23-14

You want the good news or the bad news? The good news is that we’ve had a week of solid cool temps, some rain, it made for some muddy flows, brought the river up, and bought us some time so to speak.

Truckee River Fishing Report 7-18-14

Pretty good steady fishing still here on the Truckee River in the greater Lake Tahoe-Truckee-Reno area. Been doing a lot tight line nymphing in the fast stuff. Crays, stones, and caddis. Get out early before the water gets warm- the fishing is pretty good. Luckily, we’ve been getting big thunder heads every afternoon with rain, hell, the river was darn near blown out this morning. Things could get dicey by the end of this month. They will drop flows out of Lake Tahoe. No one seems to know exactly what the flows will be, but it is going to be paramount that when you fish, you fish early, and don’t fish after a certain time of the day. Right now, we’re ok. We do have water storage in Donner Lake, and Independence Lake. Both lakes are full, and it will be used, I’m told, to help supplement the water for the river. The river will be fine, and so will the fish and the fishing. We just have to educate, or I have to educate the importance of not fishing when water temps get warm. August could be record hot, or we could get a monsoonal flow with afternoon thunderstorms every day. We’ll just have to keep our fingers crossed.

On Photography

I’ve used a lot of crappy digital point and shoot cameras over the years, nothing over a few hundred bucks, and they’re fine for goverment work, but you can only do so much with them.

Fishing is good around the Lake Tahoe basin, the dry fly fishing I should say. I’m not gonna name names, but if you know where to look and go at the right time of day with the right emergers and duns (preferably mine) well..
