April 2017 Fly Fishing News

Truckee River Conditions and Update

4/22/2017 –  The flows on the Truckee river are even higher right now with more water being released from Lake Tahoe, up 400cfs with a total of 1600 cubes. Glenshire is at 2,500 cubes and in the canyon it’s pumping near 4,700. Fish are still stacked in certain areas in the side water that has a slower current, with deeper water. If you want to learn more about how to fish big water, don’t mind hiking and dropping down steep banks, while visiting multiple locations, give me a ring at 530.228.0487, or email me at to book a trip with me. I do have a few days available in both April and May. Click HERE to see the details on a new article I wrote on the Truckee River in California Sportsman Magazine.
