Current River Conditions: Flows are now at 1,200 CFS above Boca which makes wading much easier. The Truckee is one of the few waters that remains relatively clear during runnoff. Water has a light green tint but is definitely fishable along the edges. Several reports from our guides and clients is that fishing is good. Definitely worth a try.
Our guides tell us that fish are beginning to look up and Insects such as PMDs, Green Drakes, Caddis, Golden Stones and Blue Wing Olives are showing . Carpenter Ants have re-appeared, and when the fish see one overhead, they will be all over them. Not a bad idea to fish them down below too. Streamer fishing along the edges will get you the largest fish.
Good patterns to try are those that represent larval stages of PMDs, Blue Wing Olives and Caddis larva. Don't forget to try patterns that represent Green Drakes, Golden Stones, and Worms. We have reports that passionate pink San Juan Worms under an indicator along the edges are catching fish. The biggest fish are caught by stripping streamers along the seams, edges and eddies.
Pheasant Tail #12, #14 & #16, San Juan Worm/passionate pink, Golden Stone Nymph #8,, #10, & #12, Copper John/red or copper #14, #16, Prince Nymph (various sizes), Wooly Bugger/rusty, black, Glow Bug/red.
