Guided Fly Fishing Tours
With over 120 miles, from the town of Truckee to the Nevada state line, the Truckee River is stocked with Lahontan Cutthroat, Brook, Brown and Rainbow Trout. There are three main sections of the Truckee River that offer unique angling experiences. Lake Tahoe to Trout Creek is heavily stocked by the state and is fed by many tributaries. This section is very popular with white water rafters and it is advised to start early during the summer months. This section also boasts much clearer water than the rest of the river; acces this section from Highway 89.
Trout Creek to the Boca Reservoir is a Wild Trout stream, it is much cooler, requires barbless hooks only and is the most popular section for fly fishing. Many Brown and Rainbow Trout can be found here; Limit two fish over 15-inches. From the reservoir to the Nevada state line larger Trout may be found and more difficult to fish. The deep water will make wading almost impossible and access is more difficult.
