The Truckee River flows out of Lake Tahoe, California some 120 miles north east through the town of Reno, Nevada and eventually empties out into Pyramid Lake. Lake Tahoe was called the Salmon Trout River in 1844 by John C Fremont and Kit Carson for the huge cutthroat that ran up stream out of Pyramid Lake. The river was named after a Paiute Chief that save a immigrant party who were lost in the Nevada desert and led them to the Truckee River and on up to through Donner Pass. In honor of how he saved the group, they named the river after what they thought he was pronouncing his name as Chief Truckee.
