Fishing

A climate moderated by a wide range of elevations makes fishing possible throughout the year. Depending on when and where you go, species range from rainbow or German trout (with some steelhead, brook and mackinaw), to bass, Kokanee salmon, and pan fish.

Popular spots in the higher elevation include Boca and Stampede Reservoirs and the Truckee River. Favorite foothill locales include the Yuba River, Scotts Flat, Bowman Lake, and the Grouse Lakes Area. Fly-fishing is popular and ice fishing is available. Mountain Hardware in Truckee offers current conditions, tips, maps and gear.
