Little Truckee River - July 25th, 2007
  • Recorded:
  • Mostly sunny
  • 79 ° F 
  • Fishing: Great
   We also fished the Little Truckee River, which runs about 7 miles from Stampede Reservoir down to Boca Reservoir. A very small river during the summer only running around 50cfs, with lots of riffles, runs and pools. Surprisingly this small river holds large beautiful rainbows that can reach 20 inches or more. Fishing below the riffles with small pockets of holding water using a nymph dropped off a hopper or stonefly pattern was very productive during the day. Caddis Pupas in tan or green, small Prince nymphs and San Juan Worms in size #12-#16 worked well as the dropper. Every evening as the sun would come off the water, the runs and pools would boil with rises. Small dark Caddis and Midges were on the dinner menu every night, sometimes with a Caddis Sparkle pupa or Midge Emerger dropped off the back for desert. It was a lot of fun fishing for big Rainbows in such challenging small water.
