About The Truckee River
The Truckee River flows 121 miles from Lake Tahoe in California through the Sierras, Reno and Sparks and empties into Pyramid Lake. Its waters offer world-class fishing for kokanee salmon (seasonally) as well as rainbow, brown, brook and cutthroat trout. It is an important source of agricultural irrigation water and supplies 85% of the drinking water in the Truckee Meadows. Residential real estate along the riverbanks can be found in the form of homes, small ranches and condominiums from Verdi to just west of Fernley where the river takes a sharp turn north to Pyramid lake.
