Truckee River-Lake Tahoe Area Fly Fishing Report 1.17.15

The Truckee and Little Truckee have been in great shape since the first of the year. The last two weeks have been some of the best winter fly fishing we’ve ever experienced.

It does come at a price however; the Watermaster seems to be dumping quite a bit of water out of the local reservoirs.  Not totally sure why but we might as well fish while we can. Locally, we’re all doing the ‘snow-pack’ dance.

So far in ‘15 the normal winter bugs have been working. Most of the fish landed so far have been on Sz. 16-20 baetis, 20-22 midges and as of this week small winter stone nymphs.

The dry fly game has been inconsistent, but good when it does happen. All of our dry fly eats have been on baetis and midges on the same sizes above.

We’ve also been getting into fish with natural colored streamers down river. There is a bit of color and with the warmer temps the fish are responding.

Our guide staff has several openings over the next few weeks so we should have no problem getting you on the river. Remember, fishing is on fire right now and there are no crowds. Can’t beat it.
