Truckee Tahoe Fly Fishing Report June 21st, 2021

For the second day of #summer this report will focus on the Truckee #river. The fishing has had excellent fly fishing as the nice flows have continued and the water temps are holding in there. There is plenty of top water action for the #dryfly angler. The Green Drakes have started as well as nice hatches of Little Yellow Stones and Caddis. There is a mismash of other small mayflies hatching as well. It is time to get out and fish as these conditions will fade away soon.

Truckee River Conditions

The Truckee River flows are 371cfs in town and 450cfs at Boca. The water temps are hitting 64 degrees in the afternoon. Clarity is good but you can tell that there is a lot of people in the water. The tint has changed.

Truckee River Tactics

Tactics for the Truckee river at this time. Dryfly and Drydropper as long as the fish keep coming up. Nymphing in the deeper pools. Haven't tried a streamer in a few weeks but early or late in the day should be good timing for swimming a big fly in search of bigger trout.

Truckee River Summary

The Truckee River is fishing really well right now, Dry Fly season. It is time to get out and give a try while we still have good conditions.

Small stream Brookie

Other options

At this point the smaller streams are still holding in there with good water temps and plenty of hatches. Those Brookies are pretty willing to eat any well presented fly. The local reservoirs are in good shape for smallmouth bass around structure and the dams. Farther afield Milton is still fishing as well.
