Early morning is still the ticket here on the Truckee. Expect best action of the day before the sun hits the water. Look for fish in their normal lies early morning, but moving into faster heads of runs once it warms a bit. High sticking stones or dead drifting crays under an indicator should get you a few takes.
With much colder temps last night we were glad we had wadders early this morning. Come prepared for just about anything in the weeks to come. September is just around the corner now and summer is losing fast. With water temps cooling fishing should start to only heat up. Less pressure and low flows make for a great time to come up and explore a new piece of water with one of our guides!

Guide Phil WHite: We concentrate our efforts in the "middle section", from the town of Truckee to Floriston. This section of the river is fairly flat and has an abundance of pocket water, deep pools, long runs and tail-outs. We'll walk 'n' wade this water. Weather has been good to us on the Truckee. The Truckee is home to a growing population of Browns and Rainbows with a few Cutthroats and Brookies thrown into the mix. You'll come across a number of fish in the 15" to 20" range. That being said, fish pushing 30 inches are not unheard of but landing these terrific trout is a challenge unlike any other. If you're looking for a big boy - fish streamers. This year may be the best season that we have seen in many years. Flows are very, very good at 180 cfs!

Please be smart during the heat of the day. Try not to stress the fish. Land them fast or take an afternoon nap.
