Upper Truckee

There are no products matching the selection.

The Truckee River is a tailwater that flows from Lake Tahoe for 125 miles ending at Pyramid Lake in Nevada. Technically speaking, this river is a tailwater, but at times it can flow like a freestone and fish like a Spring Creek. The California Section fishes well between 100 and 300cfs, with hatches of Stoneflies, Mayflies, Caddis and Midges throughout the year. There is also an abundance of bait fish and crawdads in this river, and fish here can reach over 20 inches in length. On the Nevada side of the Truckee River, flows between 200 and 500cfs are optimal for fly fishing. The hatches here are very similar to the California section. Fish Species for both sections include Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout, Lahonton Cutthroat Trout and Mountain Whitefish.
