Thread: Day Trip Truckee or Yuba

    Default Day Trip Truckee or Yuba

    Is the Yuba still fishing strong as it has for the past month? If so where would I go. I'm not asking for anyones honey holes, just where should I go the only areas I've fished the Yuba are around Downieville and through my causins property when he lived near it in Live Oak or was it Gridley (It was years ago).

    Then I'm also thinking about going up to the Truckee, before the flows are too low?

    Can't make up my mind. It will only be for a Day trip on either Sat or Sun from my home in Elk Grove.

    Which is fishing better?

    I know the Truckee is fishing pretty good through Reno and have heard good reports up by Truckee. I don't know how the Yuba is fishing.

    The Yuba still fishes, but the Truckee River by town is getting too warm.
    Stay down in the canyon if you fish it, temps down there are still below low-mid 60's.
    PMD's sz18-20, Golden stones sz8, a variety of Caddis, and (maybe) a cray.
    Early is good.

    Ultimately, it's not catching fish that satisfies, but knowing how.

    You could always stay a little south and have access to the W. and E. Fork of the Carson River, Little Truckee, Trout Creek, etc... travel a little further south and have access to the W. Walker, which was fishing awesome a couple weeks back.

    PS... don't underestimate Markleeville Creek either...

    Jim already commented on the Truckee.

    The Yuba is fishing well, but there is less dry fly action compared to three weeks ago. Look for some dry fly action in the last hour of daylight. This week's hot flies for the Yuba: Jimmy Legs (black, 6), Fox's Poopah (tan, 14 or 16), Hogan's Yuba Pupa (Olive, 16), Bird's Nest (olive, 14), EC Caddis (tan or olive, 16), X-Caddis (tan or olive, 14).
