Truckee River Fishing Report 8/12/13

We are experiencing a mild cool August type of weather pattern here in Truckee-Reno-Tahoe area on the Truckee River. That’s good news for our finned freinds, as water temps have lowered consididerably since July. Trout are chowing down mainly on crays right now. Crays are good fished dead drifted, or stripped like a streamer. Our nocturnal stone hatch that we get has seemed to petter out as well as most other bugs, caddis, mayflys, etc. Late summer their is always less available food and haches are wanning down and won’t pick up again until fall. In Californina bring the waders as it has been in the upper 30’s most mornings in the Hirsch. In Nevada bring a garbage bag. Thanks all you assholes that use the river and don’t pick up after yourselves. I’d like to also note that the same runs are being hammered down there by the same people EVERYDAY, give it a rest man, spread out and try something new. Challenge yourself and try fishing some different water, or take off the nymph rig and throw some streamers or something. Flows are awesome, weather is good, the kids are going back to school, get up and get yourself some. Got some for myself today on the baby daddy.

    I think we need to get fellow anglers together and attend some city council meetings. I also think that everyone needs to read Uncle Larry’s blog, Red Legged Devils, the buff thing is out of control.

    Well, I’m not from there, I only visit a lot as my mother in law lives there, but if I see a MFer not acting right on the river, I’ll say something and so should you. we have a social contract with each other to uphold and enforce the behaviors we deem normative and to call out those who deviate. don’t wait for the cops, the DFG or whomever else to do it. it’s up to you.

    The Trash is a tremendous problem in the Truckee in Reno and East of Reno. i believe most of it has drifted in from the Reno area. The homeless down town leave their trash everywhere only to be blown or washe into the river. How many of us have seen rafters throw or lose their trash into the river. And then there is the white trash, the mexican trash who leave their trash behind. Why don’t the asshole running our city ban plastic bags like LA did. Why do we build a homeless shelter right on the river. Why do we have a Trash Transfer stataion right on the river. Does anyone running this city care about anything other than tourism? If something isn’t done soon, we will need to rename the Truckee to the Trashee River

    Could not agree more. Plenty of trash and “sign” of fisherman in NV. Saw some dudes dawned in fishing buffs up to there eyes leaving the river and saw one throwing a beer can in the bushes. This is a problem!

    Oh man that NV side is one durty beetch. Plastic bags were my arch nemesis back in the day. And one time I stepped in human shit. That was fun.

    I can’t say it wasn’t worth it though. The thought of fishing the crayfish/stone combo has me wishing I was there.

    Its about time that someone wakes these buttholes up. They get a report and watch you, then the next time you go they are sleeping in the run. The white trash rats are as bad as its ever been. The TR in Cali is really bad too. Thanks Matt for bringing this out .

    Its about time someone spoke up to these assholes> Its even that way on the Big TR.
    White trash! Pick up your fucking litter and give the fish a rest!!!!!

    You know I don’t like to hit the river in summer often due to fits of uncontrollable rage and vitriol, but lurking around on the NV side the past few weeks has been frustrating..

    I’ve seen the same cars with fly fishing stickers parked in the same spots day in and day out when I’m out and about.. I hit a run we used to do fantastic on and it’s got a wading trail the size of I-80, a bunch of stud marks on the rocks, and shit everywhere.. and go figure, it didn’t give up a fish.

    I back the message: Go fish some other spots on the river, or better yet, go hit one of the high country spots that fish the best this time of year. Explore. Throw streamers, buy a two hander, use an ice fishing rod.. free yourself.

    At least bird time is a few weeks away, then I can blast away my frustrations.
