Fishing Report


Local Fishing Report for the Truckee area


Donner- This year has been a tough bite for both Trophy and eater Mack’s.  I have a few more trips planned before we switch gears to kokanee.  Tough season though so far. Don’t forget that Donner is a lake where you must be inspected for AIS, so please research that to prevent a sizeable citation.


Boca- Boca has more water in than I have seen in a few seasons.  Unfortunately this year the Kokanee are tiny.  You are looking at a 12” fish as being one of the larger available.  I have heard rumors of larger fish but it’s very much a rumor at this point.

Stampede-  Stampede is the spot this year.  Probably the best fishing in Northern CA. We are looking at limits of fat, healthy kokanee in the 15.5-16” range.  The action is quick and a great outing for kids as there tends to be not much downtime.  I have not seen this lake fish like this in about 10 years.  Spots are filling quickly, so contact Marc as soon as possible to get in on the action.
