On-the-Water Report | Truckee River | mid/late August 2019

Summer seems to be making up for a rather mild start the last couple of weeks. We have made up for a cool start by consistently reaching mid to high 90s. The Truckee River is still fishing well. It seems to be best to focus efforts early in the day and around tributary confluences. The cool water entering the main river seems to concentrating fish. Can you blame them?

We are already getting excited about the upcoming Fall. Cooler temps in our rivers and streams make for some of the best fishing of the year. Not to mention we are a little over 5 weeks away from the Pyramid Lake opener. We have some great things planned for the upcoming Pyramid Lake season that we are going to announce shortly. Please stay tuned.

In the meantime. Please enjoy Mike’s most recent OTW from the Truckee River.

We hope to help you get out on the water soon. Swing by the shop or check out our flies in our online store.

On-the-Water Report | Truckee River | late July 2019

Early in the day is the name of the game on the Truckee River for trout. Water temps are creeping up towards 68F in the afternoon but dropping overnight. The afternoons are a great time to give the trout a break when the temps rise and a chance to chase warm water species, like our local bass and carp.

There are lots of young healthy trout in the Truckee river

Swing by the shop and we can help with details.

The mornings and at sundown are fishing great. Nymphing with larger flies as crayfish and attractor nymphs seem to bring the most fish to the net.

Flies that we suggest: Perdigon Black, Spanish Bullet, Quill Jig, Hot Spot, CDC Red Tag, Carot, Tunghead Stonefly, Cone head Stonefly, G6 Caddis, Jawbreaker, Joe’s Mini Cray, Elk Hair Caddis, Stimulator

Truckee River Fly Fishing Report | mid November 2018

Fly fishing has begun to pick up this week at Pyramid Lake.

Retrieving/stripping flies was the name of the game for the first week of November and now it is equally productive to retrieve Cat Whisker Booby/Midnight Cowboy rigs or have a Peacock or White Balanced Leech eaten.

Mike Anderson has split his time guiding the Truckee River and Pyramid Lake all week and has this on-the-water report for your weekend fly fishing adventures.



If you want to tie up your own Booby Flies we have all of the materials in our online store and here in the shop.

Swing by the shop or order them online.
