DON’T FORGET TO PINCH THOSE BARBS, CATCH & RELEASE ONLY NOW! NO KEEPING FISH!
Truckee River: Trout Creek to Stateline barbless Flies and lures only. NO BAIT! NO SCENTED LURES!
Flows: Glenshire 430 CFS, Boca 795 CFS, Farad 830 CFS water temps 38-41 degrees.
Big Truckee: With the deluge of rain we received last night the river has come up quite a bit. concentrate on the slower water around the edges and back eddies. Streamer fishing can be productive when flows come up. Look for days before or after stormfronts to fish as these are key days that fish will feed for longer periods of time. If you're a patient person (which I'm not) one can wait for heads to start breaking the surface or one can try to bump them on the nose reapeatedly nymphing. As I see it, you're out fishing and getting away from the masses. Hatches this time of year will consist of Midges, BWO's, and Baetis. Caution! If you do fish the Truckee in Nevada please be aware that New Zealand Mudsnails have been found in sections of water there so please clean your shoes and gear accordingly to avoid aquatic hitch hikers! Study the water and turn rocks and see what is going on, also seine for what is in the drift. Little things like this and slowing your approach to the river’s edge will greatly increase your chances of being successful. Again, make sure your box is stocked with every conceivable stage of bugs that are present now! (x) = drawer number.
STREAMERS (slow strip, deep pools)
Little Truckee River: NO BAIT!!! NO SCENTED LURES!!! PLEASE BE CONSIDERATE OF OTHER ANGLERS AND THEIR SPACE! PLEASE DON’T FISH ONE SPOT FOR TO LONG. CATCH & RELEASE PLEASE!
Flows: 170 cfs!
Little Truckee: Flows are up again to 170 cfs now and have been fairly stable for weeks now. Water temps are more stable here and with the cold temps for the next week or so it's a great itme to venture out here for some prime winter fishing. Some really nice trout are caught here and getting here hasn't been a problem lately with no snow on the road. There can be some decent BWO, Baetis, and Midge hatches during the course of the day. Good place to sit and wait for heads to start breaking the surface for the dry enthusiasts while small midge and Baetis patterns are the go to nymph patterns.
WEEK OF 3/6/2014
*Designates best areas to go fishing now.
WEATHER FOR THE WEEK: Some unsettled weather for the rest of the week, mostly in the form of rain at our elevation. Saturday looks like it will be the best weather day of the week. There is now open water at Donner, Boca, Prosser, Stampede and access to Jackson Meadows is open. Also, for spin fisherman throwing barbless artificials the Big Truckee from Trout Creek to Glenshire Bridge, then again from Prosser outflow to Stateline can be fun if you prefer moving water and catch and release trophy trout fishing!
**DONNER : This lake has been fishing very well. Lake is at its winter level and a lot of fish are cruising the shoreline drop offs now! With temps still ranging in the mid 50's and the crowds here for the week maybe take a break and go fish! This lake was stocked the week of 5/26/2013, 7/7/2013 and 8/25/2013, 9/22/13, 10/14/13, and 10/30/13!
**BOCA: Lake level is very low at 22 percent capicity. Lake is free of ice and is coming up slightly. To early for the ice to be gone but fishing here tends to be very good after this has happened. This lake was stocked the week of 6/24/13, 6/30/13, 7/7/13! Was stocked the week of 8/18/13 and 9/15/13!
**STAMPEDE: Some nice macks are always cruising around the dam this time of year so if you can get out, do. Access here is wide open and those with small aluminum boats are already trolling for some of the bigger fish that are not accessible by shore fishing. This lake was stocked the week of 6/11/2013 and 7/22/2013. Was stocked the week of 8/12/2013!
*PROSSER: Lake is at 28% capacity and is wide open now as the ice is gone. Fishing outside the inlets and around the dam has produced the best results. This lake was stocked the week of 7/18/13 and 9/1/13. This lake was also stocked the week of 10/30/2013!
MARTIS LAKE: CLOSED FOR THE SEASON!
TRUCKEE RIVER(GENERAL REG SECTION FROM TAHOE CITY TO TROUT CREEK) CLOSED FOR THE SEASON!
LITTLE TRUCKEE RIVER (ABOVE STAMPEDE 89 NORTH TOWARDS SIERRAVILLE) CLOSED FOR THE SEASON!
**JACKSON MEADOWS: The road here is open to Jackson Meadows. Way to early for this to happen but for those who need to get here it's good news.
**PYRAMID LAKE: This year has been the comeback year for this lake as anglers are catching some large cutts. Fishing here has been very good! Using full sink lines or shooting heads after a running line is the way to go this time of year. Wooley Worms, Beetles, and leech patterns. Recently though, fish are being caught of deeper points with nymph-indicator rigs. Color is dependant on the day so come prepared. Best areas now are Popcorn, Blockhouse, Wino, Monument, and Diego Bay. We carry all the signature patterns for Pyramid by Umpqua!
ALL STREAMS AND CREEKS ARE CLOSED UNLESS OTHERWISE DESIGNATED!!!!!!!
