Truckee River Day is a one-day event that’s been taking place since 1996. It provides a great opportunity for people to come out and get some good fishing juju under their belt by giving back to the river.

The event usually involves buckets and shovels, but this year will be quite a bit different. Instead of one day, it’s three (October 16, 17 and 18)! The Truckee River Watershed Council has decided that this year will be a celebration of what has already been done. Instead of working on one riverside site, there will be ten sites to visit, and the job for those who come out to participate is to get outside and appreciate what’s already been done for our river.

Keep in mind that browns are still in spawn-mode, so avoid shallow gravel sections and keep an eye out for redds!
