Little Truckee River

The Little Truckee River is a tributary of the Truckee River.

This river starts high in the Sierras near Mt. Lola and flows out of Weber Lake. The Little Truckee then travels through Perazzo Meadows, under highway 89 and into the Stampede and Boca Reservoirs.

The dominant species in the Little Truckee are brown and rainbow trout and an occasional brook trout.

Historically, there were Lahontan cutthroat trout in this Truckee River tributary, but due to passage barriers and non-native introductions, Lahontan cutthroat are no longer found in the river.
