Truckee River Watershed Map

The Truckee River has a greater average annual flow than any of the rivers which flow east from the Sierra Nevada.  The flow of the river year-to-year is controlled mostly by the amount of snow received in the upper elevations of the watershed during the winter months. The Truckee River Watershed map is produced by the Nature Conservancy Office in Reno.
