Truckee River

Tip of the week 

Flows are low. Fish are stressed and grouped up in pools and highly oxygenated water for survival. If you do fish, fish early and practice quick catch and release.
Try a smaller stonefly or San Juan to attract attention followed by a Caddis imatation such as the G-6 or Birds Nests. Also, try streamers in olive, natural or baby trout patterns to entice a big brown. Avoid fishing mid-day! Days are getting shorter and nights cooler...the Truckee might just make it but a little more rain would help.

Seven-day forecast 

Fishing should continue to be just okay as long as flows are down. Be cautious on warmer days remember to cover up from the sun and stay hydrated. Fish early! Try downtown too. Hope for more rain. Give your fellow angler plenty of room and handle fish as little as possible or try a stillwater as Davis is on or maybe try a backcountry lake like Milton...Pyramid season isn't far off!
