Truckee Tahoe Fly Fishing Report June 5th, 2018

Conditions here couldn’t be better super nice weather, plenty of water, and really eager fish.  The flows are a bit up and down on the rivers but that hasn’t seemed to disrupt the fish too much.  On the reservoirs temps are still good and the fish are still in the shallows.  Perfect for fly fishing.  It’s a great time to been here.

Truckee River*** The flows have dropped a fair amount and are 246cfs near Truckee and 503cfs at Boca.  Mid-day water temps are in the Mid 50’s.  With the lower flows look for the water temps to rise and the fish to get more active.  There are still plenty of Mayflies hatching BWO’s and March Browns.  Managed to pick up fish on top but, nymphing has been the most productive all day.  For Dries try  Ants 8-10, Parachute Adams 14-20, Quigley Cripples 14-18, March Browns, 14-16 and Royal Wulff 12-16.   For Nymphs try Try Pat’s Rubber legs 8-10, Mercer’s Poxyback Golden Stone 8-10,  Flashback PT 12-14, SJW, Haresear 10-14, Birdsnest 10-14, and Prince Nymphs 8-10.  For Streamers try your standard Woolley Buggers  green and black 4-10, Sculpin patterns in green, white, and tan 4-8.

Little Truckee**-***  The flow is up a bit at 177cfs and the temps are in the high 40’s.  With that fishing has been great one day and tough the next.  Ants, Midges, BWO’s, PMD’s, and even some Caddis out and about.  Expect to see more fish looking up.   For Dries try Ants 8-10, Parachute Adams 14-20, Quigley Cripples14-18, Midges 18-22, Griffiths Gnat 16-20, Skwalas 10-12, and BWO’s 16-20. For nymphs try Pats Rubber Legs 10, Copper Johns 10-16, Micro May 16-18, SJW’s, Zebra midge 16-18 Pheasant tails 14-18,  Flashback PT’s 14-18, Haresears 12-16, and Princes 10-16. Sclupzilla Streamers 8 have been popular.

Prosser, Boca, Stampede ***  Stampede has been great in all of the inlet areas.  Midges and Calibeatis under an indicator has been hot again this last week.  Had pretty good streamer action as well for a change.   For Dries try Ants 8-10, Parachute Adams 14-20, Quigley Cripples 14-18, Hares Ear nymphs 14-16, Birdnest 14-16, March Browns 14-16, Callibeatis 14-16. and Blood Midge 16-18.   For nymphs Callibeatis nymphs 14-16, Flashback PT 14-16, Zebra Midges 16-18, and Blood Midge 16-18.  For Streamers try your Woolley Buggers  green and black 4-10.
