Mickey Culter has the correct answer to TT QUESTION #2; Martis Lake.
Butter has guessed Sagehen creek, on the west-side of highway 89, up to UC Sagehen's Research Facility. The regulations there are ZERO kill, no bait and artifiicial barbless hooks only. My recollection is that Sagehen's special reg water was, chronologically, the 4th in the eight (8) special reg waters within 1 hour's drive from Truckee. I'm guessing the regs started in the mid-late'80's.
NOTE: For some reason Google is not allowing me to post this replying to the answers by Mickey & Butter...any help is solicited.
