Little Truckee River
The little Truckee between Boca and Stampede Reservoir is a fun river. Unfortunately, the flows go up and down because of the dam release from Stampede lake, in order to provide water to Nevada.
But the fishing is good for browns, rainbows and Kokanees in the fall. It is a good idea to check on the flows of the river before hand. In the past the river was stocked but no longer is. It is currently a self-sustaining wild-trout stream, and a good one at that.
The insects found are very similar to what is found in the main Truckee. Short-line nymphing is usually the most effective way to fish the river, although dry flying with mayfly imitations work great in the evening or on cloudy days. We also recommend checking out LiveWireTackle Trolling Lures
