Truckee River February Update

Minimal runoff, mild weather and relatively warm water = active fish. Saw some nice fish rise in some heavy water today.

Midges and BWO are in good numbers and the fish are definitely searching for skwalas right now.

I caught a lot more white fish than trout this session, they're definitely active and where you find one, you'll find many.

I keep hooking sedges with my dropper.

What's fishing better - east or west of Reno?

I think they're both fishing great, the only problem with east is you need a boat to effectively fish it except by Lockwood, the good runs are few and far between but Matt Kohl's seems to be consistently nailing BIG bows out there. From what I've experienced, fish are active from the Sparks kayak park to Verdi and everywhere in between.

Thanks Ryan - appreciate the info. Planning on hitting the water Thursday or Friday.
