Truckee River crawfish

Nymphing or stripping a crawfish on the Truckee river has been really effective lately. Like anything else on the Truckee, the key is getting the fly down to the bottom and getting a good drift through the lane. Don’t be shy with the weight and get ready to hook some nice Truckee river browns and rainbows.

Muddy Waters on the East Carson

Letting everybody know the East Carson turned to chocolate milk again. The silt on the river bottom and rocks gets turned up every time we get rain or any water is let into the river. Once it does clear/turn to green water the fishing has been pretty good though. Just be careful wading.

The Little Truckee has been fantastic lately. Big fish eating dry flies throughout the day. The fish in the Little Truckee are smart, so go small, present your flies correctly and hold on. It can be fun to fly fish the Truckee River and then move over to the Little Truckee once the water in the Truckee starts warming up as well.
