Truckee River Fishing Report-1-7-19

Big snows for the Truckee River.

We got almost 2 feet here in the Hirsch over the weekend. Much more on top. A good old fashioned Sierra storm system. More on the way too. Looks like systems should be coming in all week. Storm door is open I guess for now.  Just have to time your fishing and traveling accordingly. Trouts like rain and snow.

Fishing is good though. Flows are good, and even though it’s been snowing, it’s not nearly as cold as was the last few weeks. Should get in the 40’s today. I’ve been still mainly in Nevada floating the Nature Conservancy section. Mainly fishing streamers, looking for a few meat eaters. The poundage of fish we’ve hooked and lost last few trips is, well.

Should be pretty good up here in California now too. Just needed it to warm up a bit. Remember, trouts like water about 3-5 feet deep this time of year. Slow walking pace type water. Flows are good all over.
