Before you fish, visit Mountain Hardware and Sports in Truckee. You can get the latest intel for the region. Buy the recommended flies and a Streamtime map for the region.

Popular spots are:
Glenshire
Little Truckee
Hirshdale

If you want a better chance of getting a fish, hire a guide for a day. Here are a few:
Jim Landis
Matt "Gilligan" Koles
Matt Heron - the Expedia fish dude
Arlo Townsend
Dan LeCount

Be prepared to throw a variety of flies. The fishing can be very technical. There is a reason it is called the "Tricky."

A 3 weight is too light for the Truckee, but it would be fine for some local creeks. Keep in mind that many of the locals are very tight lipped about them for good reason. Water levels are kind of low.
