Fishing Report for the Truckee River and Little Truckee River, East and West Walker Rivers, West and East Carson Rivers, and many Tahoe area Stillwaters. Updated June 6, 2012!  

We offer guided fly fishing year round on the Carson, Truckee and Walker Rivers.  Caples, Red Lake, Spooner Lake, Indian Creek Reservoir and Boca Reservoir as well.

East Carson River Fishing Report – Currently flowing at 351 CFS.  June 6, 2012

Both sections of the East Carson are now Open 

Above Hangman’s Bridge Fishing has improved with the lower flows and cleaner water.  Running heavy nymph rigs can produce fish, with caddis pupae, San Juan Worms, Glow Bugs, Copper Johns and Stonefly Nymphs! Also running a streamer during these high water times can produce fish as well.  The stocked sections around the bridges and the Carson River Resort have been fishing well for Rainbows and our newly added Lahontan Cutties.   

The catch and release section below Hangman’s Bridge has also improved with the lower flows.  A lot of the Lahontan Cutthroat have worked their way down and are eating nymphs readily.  It is crossable in most areas, carry a wading staff and wade with respect.  We have passed the peak of full run-off and it should be more and more fishable each day.  The dry fly fishing is minimal but with this week’s warmer weather, the fish should start looking up more. 

Guides Available call (530-541-8208).  

West Carson River Fishing Report – Currently at 100+ CFS and stable.

The West Carson River is very fishable. The river has been stocked, fish are being caught Nymphing: S J worms, Stoneflies and Copper Johns and on Streamers: White, Black buggers, White Muddy Buddies.  Fish the sections around the bridges which are where the fish will be congregating after being dumped from a truck!  The West Carson fish are starting to look up at big stone flies, caddis and little yellow stones on the surface so try some dries, too.

West Walker River Fishing Report- Currently flows are at 336+ CFS. 

The California sections along hwy 395 are fishing well as are the sections above the highway.  Lots of fish have been planted which makes for a good time for those that like an easier fishery!  Flows are getting lower and the fishing is improving daily.  Try Buggers, Eggs and brightly colored Streamers!  This river is getting more and more dry fly action as well and the dry fly fishing should get better as this week goes on.  Look for rising fish eating caddis in the evenings in the tailouts, eddies and slower moving sections.

The Nevada sections can be fun and stay open all year.  Try the Hoye Canyon section above Wellington or the Wilson Canyon section below Smith Valley.    Another fun fishery is the Tube below Topaz Lake which can hold some pretty nice fish as well as stockers from NDOW. They have dropped the flows in this section and the water has cleared.  There are caddis hatches in the evenings through the whole lower river right now. 

East Walker River Fishing Report- Flows are 119+ CFS. June 6, 2012

CA section:  The Miracle Mile is still fishing well with Midges, Baetis, caddis and pheasant tails below the surface.  Caddis Nymphs are moving around and the fish are looking for them.  Some of the more fun days have been fishing dries!  The Caddis adults slowed with the cooler weather this last weekend, but will pick right back up with the warmer weather. The pocket water below the mile is nymphing well with caddis pupae and pheasant tails. There is also a midday PMD hatch and it is a blast to fish.  Where it was fishing in the first ¼ mile most of the winter the fish have now spread out and the whole river is holding fish.  Get away from the crowds and fish the roadside spots all through California.  Streamer fishing is also picking up with the water temperatures increasing and the release of a bunch of fingerlings up high.  Dead drift or with action and white tends to be a good color.

Nevada section: The Rosachi Ranch section has been very fishable for a few weeks now and should continue to fish well into the early summer.  It looks like the flows will stay down for most of June (fingers crossed) which bodes well for Nevada fishing. Nymphs and streamers are your best bets on the Rosachi right now.  Nymph up and streamer back down.  The flows are such that even after you walk through fish they will slide back into their holding spots so remember where you spook the big fish crossing.

Guides Available call (530-541-8208).  We have been guiding and fishing the EW quite a bit lately and producing numerous fish days!

Little Truckee River Fishing Report- Flows are 142+ CFS.  June 6, 2012

This is a great time of the year for the LT.  The green drakes and PMDs should start any day.  The Midges and Caddis are going as well.  Caddis have been coming off mid-day, keep a look out for the March Browns to fill in as well.   Midge, Baetis, and Caddis Nymphs and Emergers are working great.  There has been some terrestrial activity.   Sight casting for eating fish can be a lot of fun!   Watch for crowds!

Truckee River (Ca) Fishing Report- Flows on the Truckee are above 173 CFS near the town ofTruckee and 503+ CFS belowBocaBridge.  June 6, 2012

Open above the 267 Bridge.  Should fish well with low flows coming out of Tahoe.  June is a great month for this section of river.

Year round section below 267.    Fishing has been good lately and will continue to be so until the daytime temps get too high and the river gets too warm in the midday. Fish with green drake nymphs, pheasant tails, caddis pupae and smaller streamers. The pocket water is now fishable, but interesting wading still.  

Truckee River (Nv) Fishing Report- Flows on the Truckee in Nevada are 450+ CFS.

The fishing has slowed but fish can still be caught using high water tactics as long as the flows don’t go crazy.  Stones, Baetis, Caddis have been getting fish. Look for the fish to move closer to the banks with the higher flows.  Streamer fishing has been getting fish but you’re looking for a few grabs and those grabs could be big!!  Golden Stone Nymphs, Baetis Nymphs.  Big Black or White Streamers are always worth trying for the big eat!

Flows are still good for floating!

Guides Available call (530-541-8208).  Learn it and Love it!  We will be doing a limited amount of float trips on the Truckee this Summer, please call for details.

Tahoe Area Stillwaters:  June 6, 2012

Pyramid Lake- Finally starting to pick up just when you think it is done for the year.  Fish the points and drop offs with Buggers and Beatles as well as “Heave It And Leave It” with Chironomids, Copper Johns and Hover Nymphs.  Closes June 30th.

Indian Creek Reservoir – There are still plenty of fish in Indian Creek but thinning quickly.  It will probably not get stocked again for a while.  Buggers in Black, Olive and or Brown have been working well.  The Blood Midges go on certain evenings and the only way to hit is to be out there!  Full sinking lines from a float tube have produced the best results.  Fish a bugger followed by a Blood Midge Nymph.  There are some rising fish on calm evenings.  The damsels are going but will be better with warmer temps.  The weeds come with the warmer temps so get your ICR days in now.  The wind report out of Minden will give you an idea of the winds at ICR.   Should be fun for awhile until the fish get taken out. 

Caples Lake – Fishing well from a floatation device.  Sinking lines are working the best in and around rocky areas.  Look for the inlet area to fish earlier than it has as well as a few spots around the dams.  Streamers, Streamers and more Streamers when it gets fishable.   A small nymph or lake nymph trailer will increase your odds.  Rent a boat at Caples Lake Resort for a fun experience and fish the Emigrant Bay area!

Red Lake Fishing Report- Red is fishing okay with periods of bite during the day and better without a gale force wind.  An intermediate line with a Woolly Bugger and small nymph trailer is your best bet.  You can also do slow wind drifts with an indicator on Red and be productive. 

Silver Lake fishing report- Silver is fishing similarly to Caples.  Fish from a boat or floatation device and cast toward shore with slow retrieves of streamers and small nymphs. 

Spooner Lake Fishing Report- The Lake is thawed and there are numerous fish in the lake!  Water is cold but the fishing should get better as the temps come up.  Leeches, Buggers, Blood Midges andWorms will work the best!  Float tubing is the way to go.  I think some of the best Stillwater fishing in the Central Sierra and the opportunity to catch a Tiger Trout!

Guides Available call (530-541-8208). 

Marlette Lake Fishing Report- Closed until this summer!

Blue Lakes Fishing Report-  The gates and campgrounds are open.  It is fishing well by the dam and in the calmer coves if windy!

We have offered guiding on most of these waters for over 15 years. The shop is fully stocked with all the latest equipment and flies needed to fish the Eastern Sierra and more.

East Carson River Fishing Report – Currently flowing at 500+ CFS.  May 21, 2012

Both sections of the East Carson are now Open 

Above Hangman’s Bridge the Run-off has started but fish can still be caught.  Running heavy nymph rigs can produce fish, with San Juan Worms, Glow Bugs, Copper Johns and Stonefly Nymphs! Also running a streamer during these high water times can produce fish as well.  The stocked sections around the bridges and the Carson River Resort have been fishing well for Rainbows and a great way to wet a line and get warmed up for the season.   

The catch and release section below Hangman’s Bridge is a tougher fish at this time but has become more fishable as the flows are dropping below 500 cfs during the day.  Not as many stocked fish in this section which is what is making the upper section fishable.  It is crossable in certain areas, carry a wading staff and wade with respect.  It seems as if we have reached the peak of full run-off and it should be more and more fishable each day.  Check the flows, check the flows and check the flows!

 West Carson River Fishing Report – Currently at 155+ CFS and stable.

The West Carson River Is now open and water is clearing and very fishable.

West Walker River Fishing Report- Currently flows are at 450+ CFS. 

The California sections along hwy 395 have fished well for the opener as well as the sections above the highway.  Lots of fish have been planted which makes for a good time for those that like an easier fishery!  Flows are getting lower and the fishing is improving daily.  Try Buggers, Eggs and brightly colored Streamers!

The Nevada sections can be fun and stay open all year.  Try the Hoye Canyon section above Wellington or the Wilson Canyon section below Smith Valley.  Look for warmer, cloudy days for a good Caddis hatch!  Another fun fishery is the Tube below Topaz Lake which can hold some pretty nice fish as well as stockers from NDOW.  There is a lot of water in this section right now and clarity is off, wait for them to drop the flows out of Topaz.  

East Walker River Fishing Report- Flows are 100+ CFS. May 21, 2012

CA section:  The Miracle Mile is still fishing well with Midges and Baetis below and above the surface. Caddis Nymphs are starting to move around and the fish are starting to look for them.  Some of the more fun days have been fishing dries!  The Caddis adults should start popping any day.  Each day, anglers are seeing more and more around.   Occasionally the fish will take a Stone Nymph up high but mostly once you get below the bridge in the pocket water sections.  Big Stone Dries have been working as well but once again down lower in the pocket water sections.  Where it was fishing in the first ¼ mile most of the winter the fish have now spread out and the whole river is holding fish.  Get away form the crowds and fish the roadside spots all through California.  Streamer fishing is also picking up with the water temperatures increasing.  Dead drift or with action and white tends to be a good color.

Nevada section: The Rosachi Ranch section has been very fishable for a few weeks now and should continue to fish well into the spring.  It looks like the flows will stay down for most of May which bodes well for Nevada fishing.  The Skwala Stones have slowed way down.  Nymphs and streamers are your best bets on the Rasachi right now. The Baetis hatches have been filled in on the cloudy days especially and the fish have been eating them well throughout the middle of the day.  And always finish your day with a bit of Streamer fishing!

Above Hangman’s Bridge the Run-off has started but fish can still be caught.  Running heavy nymph rigs can produce fish, with San Juan Worms, Glow Bugs, Copper Johns and Stonefly Nymphs!

The catch and release section below Hangman’s Bridge is a tougher fish at this time and should start to get more fishable after the run-off slows.  Not as many stocked fish in this section which is what is making the upper section fishable.  Look for flows below 600 CFS for good access on foot but should fish well with access from a raft starting in the 1000 CFS range.  We have not reached full run-off mode yet but it should really kick in soon.  Check the flows, check the flows and check the flows!

Fishing Report for the Truckee River and Little Truckee River, East and West Walker Rivers, West and East Carson Rivers, and many Tahoe area Stillwaters. Updated April 14th, 2012

We offer guided fly fishing year round on the Carson, Truckee and Walker Rivers.  Caples, Red Lake, Spooner Lake, Indian Creek Reservoir and Boca Reservoir as well.

East Carson River Fishing Report – Currently flowing at 200+ CFS.  April 14th, 2012

Now closed above Hangman’s Bridge until April 28th 2012!

The Catch and Release section below (down stream) of Hangman’s Bridge: Open all year! 

 As the temperatures come up further in April, the fishing can get good again between stormy days and run-off days.  The fish are there but really lethargic and you will have to put the fly on their nose for them to eat.  Midges and Baetis as well as glow bugs and Stonefly Nymphs!  The Nevada sections tend to fish the best during the winter months and on occasion NDOW stocks fish in the lower river and below the Broken Dam.  If they do, it can be fun to stick a few fish and keep the cobwebs off your cast!  As the waters rise this spring, the streamer fishing should be good.

Guides Available call (530-541-8208).  

 West Carson River Fishing Report – Currently at 50+ CFS and rising.

Opening on the 28th of April and it might be good early if we do not get a bunch of snow between now and then!  Stonefly Nymphs, Buggers and Glow Bugs will be the best bet!  Look for the stocked fish under or around the bridges for the best activity and stockers love the Bugger!

West Walker River Fishing Report- Currently flows are at 95+ CFS. 

Might be a little on the high side for the opener on the 28th of April but the fish usually eat well until it completely blows out with Run-Off.  Try Buggers, Eggs and brightly colored Streamers!

The Nevada sections can be fun and stay open all year.  Try the Hoye Canyon section above Wellingtonor the Wilson Canyon section below SmithValley.  Look for warmer, cloudy days for a good Baetis hatch!  Another fun winter fishery is the Tube below Topaz Lake which can hold some pretty nice fish as well as stockers from NDOW.  These sections will fish ok until the Run-Off kicks in!

East Walker River Fishing Report- Flows are 80+ CFS. April 14th, 2012

CA section:  The Miracle Mile is still fishing well with Midges and Baetis below and above the surface.  Some of the more fun days have been fishing dries!  Occasionally the fish will take a Stone Nymph up high but mostly once you get below the bridge in the pocket water sections.  Big Stone Dries have been working as well but once again down lower in the pocket water sections.  Where it was fishing in the first ¼ mile most of the winter the fish have now spread out and the whole river is holding fish.  Get away form the crowds and fish the roadside spots all through California.  Streamer fishing is also picking up with the water temperatures increasing.  Dead drift or with action and white tends to be a good color.

Nevada section: The Rosachi Ranch section has been very fishable for a few weeks now and should continue to fish well into the spring.  It looks like the flows will stay down for most of April and into May which bodes well forNevada fishing.  The Skwala Stones have been fishing well with these flows and streamer fishing has been incredible.  The Baetis hatches have been filled in on the cloudy days especially and the fish have been eating them well throughout the middle of the day.   Wait for the afternoons to fish the Stone Dries for best results.  And always finish your day with a bit of Streamer fishing!

Guides Available call (530-541-8208).  We have been guiding and fishing the EW quite a bit lately and producing numerous fish days!

Little Truckee River Fishing Report- Flows are 150+ CFS.  April 14th, 2012

We are coming into the best part of the season for the LT.  The Baetis are going as well as the Midges.  The Winter Stones are waning and keep a look out for the March Browns to fill in any day now if not already working.   Baetis Nymphs and Emergers work great this time of the year.  Sight casting for eating fish can be a lot of fun!  Please try and stay away from the spawning fish and out of their Redds.

Guides Available call (530-541-8208)  

Truckee River (Ca) Fishing Report- Flows on the Truckee are above 160 CFS near the town of Truckee and 450+ CFS below Boca Bridge.  April 14th, 2012

Closed above the 267 Bridge.  Opening day is the 28th of April!  Should fish well with low flows coming out of Tahoe but watch out for the Run-Off which will blow everything below Squaw Creek.  June is a better month for this section of river.

Year round section below 267.   Starting to fish well over the past few weeks with Stones and Baetis and should continue to fish until Run-Off kicks in.  Streamers have taken a few fish as well but dries will be the most fun.  Baetis hatches on the cloudy days have been crazy especially when it snows!  Skwala Nymphs are all over and the fish are on them.  

Truckee River (Nv) Fishing Report- Flows on the Truckee in Nevada are 450-550+ CFS.

The fishing has been stellar for most of the Winter and should continue to fish as long as the flows don’t go crazy.  Stones and Baetis have been the best with some Caddis starting to show.  Streamer fishing will get better with the water temperatures rising.  Skwala Nymphs, Baetis Nymphs and don’t forget your dry flies.  Mercer’s Missing link has been a favorite as well as the Stone Dead Stone.  Big Black or White Streamers are always worth trying for the big eat!

Great flows for floating!

Guides Available call (530-541-8208).  Learn it and Love it!  We will be doing a limited amount of float trips on the Truckee this Spring, please call for details.

Tahoe Area Still waters:  April 14th, 2012

Pyramid Lake- TheLake is up 5 feet and in most normal areas it’s hard to reach the Shelf, Water temps are in the low to mid 40 degrees. Some fish are starting to cruise the shoreline in pre-spawn. Look to cloudy and windy days for the better fishing and look for the deeper water to find fish. Stripping buggers in black, white and olive, Also beetles have been getting fish on the beaches. Indicator fishing flies in the size 8 to 14 range running between 8 to 10 ft. down.  Fish early or fish late or look for the wind to come up for best fishing!

Indian Creek Reservoir – The fishing has really taken off lately with numerous big fish caught and released.  Buggers in Black, Olive and or Brown have been working well.  The Blood Midges are starting to work as well and look for fish taking them off of the surface!  Full sinking lines from a float tube have produced the best results.  Fish a bugger followed by a Blood Midge Nymph.  The Calibaetis will start to show soon as well as Damsels.   Should be fun for awhile until the fish get taken out.

Caples LakeStill has ice on it but not really that great for Ice Fishing.  Starting to open up in a few small areas but not quite fishable yet for Ice-Out.  Probably going to thaw by Mid-May.  Look for the inlet area to fish earlier than it has aswell as a few spots around the dams.  Streamers, Streamers and more Streamers when it gets fishable. 

Red Lake Fishing Report- Still has ice on it but not really that great for Ice Fishing.  Should open up sometime in May for Ice-Out. 

Silver Lake fishing report- Check the Ice for safety! Ice-Out should be in early May if not sooner! 

Spooner Lake Fishing Report- The Lake is thawed and there are numerous fish in the lake!  Water is cold but the fishing should get better as the temps come up.  Leeches, Buggers, Blood Midges and Worms will work the best!  Float tubing is the way to go.

Fishing Report for the Truckee River and Little Truckee River, East and West Walker Rivers, West and East Carson Rivers, and many Tahoe area stillwaters. Updated March 1st, 2012

We are now offering Guided Ice Fishing Trips in the Carson pass area!

We offer guided fly fishing year round on the Carson, Truckee and Walker Rivers.  Caples, Red Lake, Spooner Lake, Indian Creek Reservoir and Boca Reservoir as well.

East Carson River Fishing Report – Currently flowing at 80+ cfs.  March 1st, 2012

Now closed above Hangman’s Bridge until April 2012!

The Catch and Release section below Hangman’s Bridge: Open all year!  As the temperatures come up in March, the fishing can get good again between stormy days and run-off days.  The fish are there but really lethargic and you will have to put the fly on their nose for them to eat.  Midges and Baetis as well as glow bugs and Stone fly Nymphs!  The Nevada sections tend to fish the best during the winter months and on occasion NDOW stocks fish in the lower river and below the Broken Dam.  If they do, it can be fun to stick a few fish and keep the cobwebs off your cast!

Guides Available call (530-541-8208).  We do not do a bunch of guided trips on this river during the winter months but on occasion it can be worth it!

West Carson River Fishing Report – Currently flows are at 20+ cfs.

Opening in two more months and it might be good early if we do not get a bunch of snow between now and then!

West Walker River Fishing Report- Currently flows are at 50+ cfs.  March 1, 2012

California Is closed.

The Nevada sections can be fun and stay open all year.  Try the Hoye Canyon section above Wellington or the Wilson Canyon section below SmithValley.  Look for warmer, cloudy days for a good Baetis hatch!  Another fun winter fishery is the Tube below Topaz Lake which can hold some pretty nice fish as well as stockers from NDOW.  Always check for frozen conditions!

There is a pay to play section at the Walker River Resort that can be a lot of fun during the winter!

East Walker River Fishing Report- Flows are 18+ cfs. March  1, 2012

CA section:  The Miracle Mile is still fishing well and with the recent snow the access gets a bit tougher but not too bad. The Midges have ruled the roost as of late with Griffiths Gnats, Para Adams and Micro Midges working well on the surface but changing day to day and the Biot Emerger, Pehle’s pupa, UV Midge and the tiny Zebra Midge doing well below.  The Baetis have begun to show in numbers as well and the fish are starting to eat them.  Try the Barr’s Emerger or Kyle’s Beerhead Baetis as well as Micro Mayflies.  When the fish are up (which is a lot lately) leave the nymph rigs in the box, the dry fly fishing has been way too much fun!

A lot of these fish are feeding on midges just below the surface and following through looking like they are eating off of the surface so pay attention to the rise form and look for a bubble when they eat an adult.  The fish have been rising as early as 8 am so get there early and give’em a go. Nevada should be starting to fish well with a few anglers having good results over the past week or so.  The Skwala Stones will start down river first so look to fish the Red Wash area or even the Elbow with big dries any day now. Nevada is a good way to beat the crowds and always worth checking out.

Guides Available call (530-541-8208).  We have been guiding and fishing the EW quite a bit lately and producing numerous fish days!

Little Truckee River Fishing Report- Flows are 40+ cfs.  March 1, 2012

As long as you can get up the road, the fishing should be worth the effort.  Look for risers in the middle of the day but don’t count on a ton of them.  The fish are still up and they still have to eat!  Baetis and Midges in small sizes under the surface as well as on top!  Winter Stones are there as well and the March Browns should start soon.  With the recent snows the road might get back to being impassable so always check first. 

Guides Available call (530-541-8208)  Guides available on a limited basis and better with a one on one ratio!

 

Truckee River (Ca) Fishing Report- Flows on the Truckee are above 200 cfs near the town of Truckee and 350+ cfs belowBocaBridge.  March 1, 2012

Closed above the 267 Bridge.  The year round section below 267 is still fishing but tough.  The water is cold and the fish are lethargic but still have to eat.  Put it on their head and they will probably open their mouths but it will take an excellent angler to get a few fish!  Some days it is not like that and the fish will eat readily but you have to pick the day.  Try Baetis or Midges and possibly an Egg pattern or San Juan Worm.  Look for the winter stones to be available as well.  It is going to get better as we start getting closer to spring especially on a beautiful day!  The lower you go towards Nevada the better the opportunity will be.

Truckee River (Nv) Fishing Report- Flows on the Truckee in Nevada are 350-450+ cfs

Flows are great for Winter fishing!  Look for the cloudy days for filled in Baetis hatches especially below Reno.  Nymphing will be best but the dries have produced plenty of fish as well.  Nymphs: Stoneflies 8-12, Mayfly patterns 16-20, Flashback PT’s 16-20. Dry Flies: Parachute Adams 14-18 and Blue Duns 18-20. Streamer action is picking up and is your best shot at one the Nevada Toads!, Streamers-Buggers in olive, white and black, Wool-Head Sculpin, Crystal Buggers, Meat Whistle olive and black, and of course the Crawdad!!!

Great flows for floating!

Guides Available call (530-541-8208).  Learn it and Love it!  We will be doing a limited amount of float trips on the Truckee this Winter, please call for details.

Tahoe area Still waters:  March 1, 2012

Pyramid Lake- Things are starting to change lately and the fishing should start to get back to normal for this time of year as we get storms coming in.  Without the wind, fish early and late in the day but when it starts to blow get out there and fish all day!  Buggers, Buggers and more Buggers for the time being…

Indian Creek Reservoir – The fishing has really taken off  lately with numerous big fish caught and released.  Buggers in Black, Olive and or Brown have been working well.  The Blood Midges are starting to work as well and look for fish taking them off of the surface sometime soon!  Full sinking lines from a float tube have produced the best results.  Should be fun for awhile until the fish get taken out.

Caples LakeIce Fishing now available!  Caples is fishing OK and the ice is safe.  With the recent snow you can get on the ice with out the worry of slipping.  The Spillway areas as well as the Main Dam area are both doing well.  Try to fish the areas that are about 10-15 feet deep and try all levels from the bottom to just below the ice.  Power Bait,Worms, Salmon Eggs and Bay Shrimp will work or try jigging a Kastmaster.  If you are not getting fish, move to a new area or look for others catching fish and get to the same area.   On occasion you can find holes that are already drilled and all they need is to be broken open with a tire iron and then use a strainer to clean out the ice if you do not own an auger.

Red Lake Fishing Report- Fishing a bit better than Caples Lake with the best fishing near the dam area.  Watch for rocks in the ice when drilling holes, a lot of rocks were thrown out onto the ice before we received snow.  One rock can destroy your auger.  Tackle and baits are the same as Caples.

Silver Lake fishing report- Check the Ice for safety! SilverLake has been drained pretty low and the fish are bucketed up…  Make sure you are in at least 10-15 feet of water before you start to fish.  Fishing has been pretty good!  Tackle and baits the same as Caples.

Guides Available call (530-541-8208).  Guided Ice Fishing trips through March!

Spooner Lake Fishing Report- Ice Fish the Dam area but be careful and stay away from the areas where the springs are (mainly the middle of the lake) which will be thinner ice.  Same as Caples as far as tackle and bait!

Guides Available call (530-541-8208). 

Marlette Lake Fishing Report- Closed until next year!

Blue Lakes Fishing Report- Done for the year.  Let’s hope we can get up there earlier next year!

The Catch and Release section below Hangman’s Bridge: Open all year!  It will take a special effort to get fish in this section over the next few months.  As the temperatures come up in March, the fishing can get good again between stormy days and run-off days.  The fish are there but really lethargic and you will have to put the fly on their nose for them to eat.  Midges and Baetis if you have to!  The Nevada sections tend to fish the best during the winter months and on occasion NDOW stocks fish in the lower river and below the Broken Dam.  If they do, it can be fun to stick a few fish and keep the cobwebs off your cast!

Guides Available call (530-541-8208).  We do not do a bunch of guided trips on this river during the winter months but on occasion it can be worth it!

West Carson River Fishing Report – Currently flows are at 20+ cfs.

Done for the season!  Looking forward to next year!

West Walker River Fishing Report- Currently flows are at 50+ cfs.

California is closed.

The Nevada sections can be fun and stay open all year.  Try the Hoye Canyon section above Wellington or the Wilson Canyon section below SmithValley.  Look for warmer, cloudy days for a good Baetis hatch!  Another fun winter fishery is the Tube below Topaz Lake which can hold some pretty nice fish as well as stockers from NDOW.

There is a pay to play section at the Walker River Resort that can be a lot of fun during the winter!

East Walker River Fishing Report- Flows are 25+ cfs.

CA section… Sunny days as of late have turned the fishing back on.  Temperatures rise and the bugs come off.  Midday fishing is the best!  Small bugs are the answer and should stay that way most of the winter.  Try 20’s and 22’s in your favorite Midge pattern or Baetis pattern!

Nevada sections are fishing a bit better than California but stick to the same bugs.  I have seen Baetis hatches at this time of year that were as good as any other time of the year with numerous fish up eating them.  Look for the warmer days with cloud cover for best results.  With the lower flows, access is much improved!

 

Guides Available call (530-541-8208).  Not the best time of the year for a guided trip on the Walker but the fishing can go off if you have the need to get out for a bit of fishing!

Little Truckee River Fishing Report- Flows are 80+ cfs.

At least the crowds are finally down and the fish are getting a bit of a break. As long as you can get up the road, the fishing should be worth the effort.  Look for risers in the middle of the day but don’t count on a ton of them.  The fish are still up and they still have to eat!  Baetis and Midges in small sizes under the surface as well as on top!  San Juan Worms and Egg Patterns as well.

Guides Available call (530-541-8208).   Please leave the spawning fish alone, give them a chance to do their thing!

Truckee River (Ca) Fishing Report- Flows on the Truckee are below 60 cfs near the town of  Truckee and 400+ cfs below Boca Bridge.

Closed above the 267 Bridge.  The year round section is still fishing but tough.  The water is cold and the fish are lethargic but still have to eat.  Put it on their head and they will probably open their mouths but it will take an excellent angler to get a few fish!  Try Baetis or Midges and possibly an Egg pattern or San Juan Worm.  It is going to get tougher as we start getting more storms in the near future!  The lower you go towards Nevada the better the opportunity will be.

Truckee River (Nv) Fishing Report- Flows on the Truckee in Nevada are 400+ cfs

Flows are great for this time of the year and actually a little on the high side!  Look for the cloudy days for filled in Baetis hatches especially below Reno.  Nymphing will be best but the dries have produced a few fish as well.  Nymphs: Stoneflies 8-12, Mayfly patterns 16-20, Flashback PT’s 16-20. Dry Flies: Parachute Adams 14-18 and Blue Duns 18-20. Streamer action is picking up and is your best shot at one the Nevada Toads!, Streamers-Buggers in olive, white and black, Wool-Head Sculpin, Crystal Buggers, Meat Whistle olive and black, and of course the Crawdad!!!

Great flows for floating!

Guides Available call (530-541-8208).  Learn it and Love it!

Now we are really at winter flows and the fish are bucketed up in the deeper runs and holes.  Not the greatest time of the year to fish the Walker in California but the fishing is still worth a try.  Small bugs are the answer and should stay that way most of the winter.  Try 20’s and 22’s in your favorite Midge pattern of Baetis pattern!

Fly Fishing Report for The Truckee River and Little Truckee River, The East Carson River and West Carson River, East Walker River and West Walker River, and many Tahoe area still waters. Updated November 1st, 2011

Fishing Report for the East and West Walker Rivers, West and East Carson Rivers, The Truckee River and Little Truckee River, and many Tahoe area still waters. Updated November 1st, 2011

We offer guided fly fishing year round on the Carson, Truckee and Walker Rivers.  Caples, Red Lake, Spooner Lake, Indian Creek Reservoir and Boca Reservoir as well.

East Carson River Fishing Report – Currently flowing at 90+ cfs.

Above Hangman’s Bridge there are literally tons of fish that have been stocked in this section and for the angler that just wants to get some fish, this is your section!  Dry fly fishing has been great with October Caddis, March Browns, Midges and Baetis imitations.   Golden Stones are crawling around and hatching periodically.  Stoneflies size 8-12, Stimulators in Orange and Yellow sizes 14-10, Caddis Poopah size 14-18, Flash Back PT’s sizes 16-20 and Buggers will take a few as well.

The Catch and Release section below Hangman’s Bridge: Time for dries! Fall Caddis, Stones and Tricos are here and we are seeing quite a few of the Isonychias hatching in the afternoons as well.  Try the Hopper and a dropper technique.  Golden Stoneflies size 8-12, Caddis Poopah size 14-18, Flash Back PT’s sizes 16-22, Tricos 18-22’s, Fall Caddis patterns and Midges.  Dry Flies have been producing all day; E/C Caddis sizes 14-18, Orange andYellow Stimulators sizes 10-16, Western March Browns to imitate the larger Mayflies and don’t forget a trailer in a Trico or a small Mayfly imitation.

Guides Available call (530-541-8208).  As long as the weather holds, the fishing should continue to be good.  Get out on those cloudy days and look for better hatches mid-day!

West Carson River Fishing Report – Currently flows are at 40+ cfs.

The flows are good and should stay that way through the closing date (November 15th). Hoppers have finally waned with the cooler temperatures.  Nymphing will work best with Small Stoneflies, Caddis, and Mayfly patterns.  Nymphs- Fox’s Poopah tan 14-18, Stonefly’s size 10-14, Mayfly’s black and olive 14-18, Pheasant Tails 14-20. Streamers-Buggers in olive, white and black.  The pocket water in the canyon is good for dry flies and the upper sections have been good as well.  The meadow needs a stealthy approach but is holding some nice fish!  Swing a Prince Nymph under any of the bridges and hang on; the stocking trucks have left a bunch of toys under the tree!

Guides Available call (530-541-8208).  Great spot for beginners!

West Walker River Fishing Report- Currently flows are at 70+ cfs.

Nymphing has been the way to go with Small Stoneflies, Caddis, and Mayfly patterns.  Nymphs- Fox’s Poopah tan 14-18, Stonefly’s size 10-14, Mayfly’s black and olive 16-20, Pheasant Tails 16-20. The October Caddis is going off, look for Caddis in the mornings and evenings.  Streamers-Buggers in olive, white and black, Wool-Head Sculpins, Crystal Buggers, Meat Whistle olive and black.

Fish the Pickle Meadows section or in the Canyon for the best fishing!

 

East Walker River Fishing Report- Flows are 45+ cfs.

The flows have dropped for the winter and hopefully stay around the 50 CFS range.  As our days cool, fishing is getting better through out the day.  Our winter bugs are starting to work in the Mile (small, smaller and tiny).  Nymphing has been the most productive using small Midge, Mayfly and Caddis patterns.  Frequent fly changes help to keep these fish biting!  The Browns are on the spawn and should be left alone!  Some Bigger Rainbows have been taken on Streamers, Dry Dropper rigs also working along the edges and in the slower water.  Baetis and Midge Emergers are working on the surface.  Look for fishing to be good through November!  A few fly suggestions;  WD 40’s & 50”s olive, gray and chocolate in sizes 20 & 22, Wiers Sprinkle chocolate and vanilla sizes 18-20,  Foxes Pupa Tan sizes16-18, Rainbow Warriors sizes 16-20, Hares Ears in 16-20’s and Barrs Emergers is 18-20’s.

Nevadais fishing well with similar bugs and the opportunity to get away from a crowd of anglers in the mile.  With the lower flows, access is much improved!

Guides Available call (530-541-8208).  Our guided trips on the Walker have been top notch with a mixture of Dries, Streamers and Nymphs.  Well worth a trip if you have been waiting!  Private Waters on the Sceirine Ranch are going off!

Little Truckee River Fishing Report- Flows are 30+ cfs.

The flows have dropped to winter levels!  The fish are eating Dries and Nymphs with the occasional streamer take in the deeper slots.  Late morning into the afternoon the Baetis have been hatching (especially on cloudy days!) and making the fish active.  Look for fish rising in the bubble lines!  Nymphing has been best in the deepest and fastest water.  A few fly suggestions:  Barrs Emerger 18-20’s, FB PT’s 18-20’s, Olive Micro Mays 16-18’s, Wiers Sprinkles 18-20’s, ParachuteAdams16-22’s, Blue Duns 18-20’s, EC Caddis 18-20’s and Rusty Spinners 18-20’s.

Guides Available call (530-541-8208).  Most trips are mixed with fishing on the Truckee part of the day!  Please leave the spawning fish alone, give them a chance to do their thing!

Truckee River (Ca) Fishing Report- Flows on the Truckee are below 60 cfs near the town ofTruckee and 400+ cfs belowBocaBridge.

TheTruckeehas been fishing very well throughout the entire day.  Flows are getting low in the upper sections and improve below Prosser Creek inflow.  Nymphing with Caddis, small Mayflies and Midges has been good.  Occasional fish on the Crawdad in the deeper buckets.  Some of the fish are rising to Midges, Caddis and Baetis in the late mornings and evenings.  Some bigger fish have been taken on Streamers early or late in the day!  Fish Golden Stones, Wiers Caddis Pupas, Barrs Emergers, FB PT’s, Wiers Sprinkles and the Dead Drift Crawfish under the surface and for dries try the EC Caddis, Parachute Adams, Western March Browns and Stimulators.

Truckee River (Nv) Fishing Report- Flows on the Truckee inNevada are 400+ cfs

Dry Flies, E/C Caddis 12-16, Parachute Adams14-18 and Blue Duns 18-20. Streamer action is picking up and is your best shot at one the Nevada Toads!,  Streamers-Buggers in olive, white and black, Wool-Head Sculpin, Crystal Buggers, Meat Whistle olive and black, and of course the Crawdad!!! Great flows for floating!

Guides Available call (530-541-8208).  Learn it and Love it!

Tahoe area Still waters:

Indian Creek Reservoir – As the winter storms started rolling through, the fishing has improved. Water Levels are way up, they have stocked big bows and they are on the prowl! Try brown buggers, Damsels and Aggravator Princes with a slow strip. Blood Midges and Calibaetis nymphs under the indicator have been working as well.  Midging with Chironomids under a bobber, deep, has been rumored to be working well.  Should fish well until it freezes!

Guides Available call (530-541-8208).

Caples Lake- Fishing really well in the afternoons when the wind is down.  The shore line is tough to fish until the lake gets its’ draw down.  Fall fishing should continue to be great with Terrestrials working the best.  Take a boat and fish the back of the lake especially in the later part of the day for dry fly action!  The South Shore of Caples is fishing the best.  Hoppers, Adult Stone Patterns, Big Mayfly Patterns, Ants and Beetles!

Guides Available call (530-541-8208).  Great trip for those that have mobility issues!  We can guide this with a boat!

 Pyramid Lake- Looking for bait balls seems to be the ticket with reports of fish feeding around the edges!  Find the bait balls and the fishing should be good but if you don’t, don’t expect much yet.  Fishing should get better as the temperatures cool!

Red Lake Fishing Report- Not great until it turns again.  The Lake is off colored but a few fish are rising.  The lake should turn anytime now and when it does let’s hope it doesn’t freeze right away! 

Guides Available call (530-541-8208).  When the lake freezes, the Ice Fishing should be good this year!

Spooner Lake Fishing Report- Fish are still being caught on Leech Patterns, Damsels and Calibaetis.  Look for the midge fishing to improve with the colder temps.  The weeds have subsided and the lake is fishing well.  Tiger Trout up to 17 inches and bigger are the attraction to this still water as well as Rainbows and Cutthroat!   Big Browns, on a rare occasion, have been caught.

Guides Available call (530-541-8208).  Great float tube guided trip.  Good numbers of fish!

Marlette Lake Fishing Report- No Reports lately…

Blue Lakes Fishing Report- Fishing well for those that fish from tubes or a boat.  Leech patterns, Buggers and Prince Nymphs with a full sinking line!  Get there before it freezes!
