Truckee River Fly Fishing Report 5/30/2019



It’s been a while since I last posted, probably the longest I’ve gone since I started this blog in 2008, but there has been only a few minor changes to my previous reports. The last two weeks have been stormy, gray days, cold, and snow. Even chain controls over the summit with the last event only a few days ago. These conditions can provide the ultimate trout weather, and often do, but at this point most fair weather anglers are ready for summer. The first change has been the flows have dropped a little. Glenshire went from 2,100 cubes down to 1,500 and with recent thunderstorms in the last 48 hours has bumped up to 1,600. It’s the same story with the Boca inlet all the way down to the state line. Fishing remains decent and good quality trout when (if) you land them in the net, some of the rainbows have the most spectacular coloration right now. Overall flows are on the big side and high water tactics still prevail. We are starting to see more hatches like March Brown and Baetis mayflies but the trout are still eating below, and smaller flies having been producing. The sun is supposed to return next week with warmer temps but you just never know what will happen in the Sierra. See you out there…
