Hot, hot and hot!

I’ll start with a Truckee fishing report and end with Hoot Owl closure updates.

Wow, what a difference a few weeks makes. We thought last week was warm, but were we wrong. It got even hotter! The high for today as I write this it supposed to be 97. That’s pretty ridiculous for Truckee the first week of July.

The good news is morning water temps on the Truckee are holding in there and the fish are still eating!

Most fish this week are being landed on mix of Hopper-Droppers, Euro nymphing the pocket water and the occasional dry fly fish on a caddis or mayfly.

The hatches we saw a few weeks ago have slowed down quite a bit, maybe even a lot depending on where you are on the river.

The bugs we are seeing are a mix of sz 14-18 caddis, some PMds in 16s, some golden stones in 12s, and Yellow Sallies in 16s. If you want to blind cast a sz. 10 Green Drake, there are still a few fish looking up for them!

That said, Hoppers with deep droppers have been really good to our guides this week and should get even better as more hoppers show up for the summer. I would suspend one or two flies at least 30” down and hold on. The dropper bite has been good with a few fish eating the hopper.

Euro has also been excellent too. Bubbles, bubbles, bubbles. Get down fast and fish them. Trust me.

Fish this week have varied in size, but like most summers there’s a lot of fish in the 8-14” range. With a few fish 16-20” being landed. As some of you know, it can be numbers, not size this time of year.

Flows: 

Flows above and below Boca are starting to stable and looking more like summer conditions by the day. From town to Boca is at 381 cfs., Farad in the canyon is dropping by the day, 744 cfs.

Hoot Owl Closures:

Unfortunately, it’s that time of year already where we need to take a serious look at water temps and protecting our fish. Ridiculous to think about since we still have snow left!

Please fish with a thermometer and consider getting off the water once the water temps hit 65-68 degrees. This is nothing new, Hoot Owls have been happening for as long as I can remember and it’s the best way to protect fish once dissolved oxygen levels dip.

Above Boca we’re seeing it hit that temperature anywhere from 11-3pm. This basically means that late afternoon and evening fishing is off limits from Boca upstream to Lake Tahoe.

With releases coming out of Boca, the water temps are a bit better but still fish with a thermometer through the canyon. I’d check every 30-60 minutes or so to be safe.

Daily Classes:

Classes are still going strong on our pond at Everline Resort. Definitely drop us a note if you’re looking to get in on the action. Class fish are being caught with a mix of dries and hopper droppers depending on the time of day.

Justin and his son with a few nice class fish! Thanks Ethan W.👍

Even with the heat, we’re still cranking this time of year and getting into fish daily. Drop Lu a note if you want to fish this summer. We’d love to get you out there!
