The river is in excellent condition and fishing well. Flows are currently ideal but they can jump pretty quick with any high elevation rain or real heat. Roughly 600cfs in Reno makes for near prefect conditions on the lower river. This isn’t going to last so get out east before we see it heat up.
From Reno West, anglers can expect some sporadic little yellow stones hatches. Nymph fishing continues to be the best method for numbers, small bead head hares ear nymphs imitate the little yellow stones very well. Streamers are still going to be the best bet for big fish, especially with the increased flows. Spin fishermen continue to do well around the parks for some impressive carry-over hatchery rainbows. Fisherman’s Park, Rock Park, Mayberry Park, and Crystal Peak Park will be stocked when flows decrease slightly.
