Fishing Report

Update March 23 , 2015

Truckee River:
Truckee River is in great shape and has been giving up fish. Flows are healthy and water is clear. Active Spring bugs include skwala stones (Tungsten Jigstone), baetis (Sloan's Mighty May), march browns and midges. Lower Truckee has offered best chances at rising fish in late morning through afternoon hrs. (Burk's Silhouette dun bwo #16-18 or Parachute Adams #16-18).
Streamer fishing has also produced. Fish crayfish and Sculpin patterns. Slow swims with cold water temps.
Rainbow trout have started their spawning routines. Leave spawning fish alone, be sure not to wade over redds or interrupt their mating procedures
Be safe, be clean, be courteous.

Pyramid Lake:
Now is the time to get your line wet at Pyramid Lake.
Most beaches along the west side of the lake have been productive.  Blockhouse, Popcorn, Indian Head, Separator, North/South Nets, take your pick.
Majority of fish are being caught with floating lines and midge patterns suspended 5-9' under an indicator. Suspend midges within vicinity of shoal line and wait. Chances are good that a big cutthroat will eventually find your bugs.  Patriot Midge, Pyramid Brassie, and Marabou Midge have been hot!
Sinking line stripping routines can also catch fish and can be a nice break from staring at an indicator. Hot stripping flies are Bunny Strippers, Popcorn Beetles, and dragonfly nymph imitations.
