These three reservoirs, at 5,800 to 6,000 feet in elevation, were built for water storage on the Truckee River drainage system. They offer a more bite-sized alternative to the nearby giant, Lake Tahoe. Yearly fluctuating water levels, however, can change the fishing conditions. All three reservoirs hold some very large trout and are stocked by the California Department of Fish & Game each year. These waters are readily accessible to the Reno/Tahoe populace, so solitude can be scarce. Type of Fish: All three lakes hold healthy populations of rainbow and brown trout. Boca and Stampede contain kokanee salmon. Stampede produces an occasional lake trout. This eTrail covers the "where, when, and how" to fish in this region. You'll get a full-page map and information on the known hatches, suggested equipment to bring, and the best flies to use.
