Truckee River

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Nymphing and high-sticking is decent at heads of pools and in the boulders. There is a dry bite out east if conditions are calm and ovecast, but some days it just doesn't happen. Limit wading in the riffles or other obvious spawning areas. Baettis, BWO emergers best. Leave spawning fish alone.

Seven-day forecast 

Look for slightly high flows for awhile. Rain/Snow came and raised flows. Warmer weather will melt some lower snow this week. Fish late-morning. Keeping hoping for more rain/snow---keep it coming---every little bit helps. Some key town areas are turning on, but it is more consistent out east at Mustang and Lockwood. Don't forget to renew your license!
