About: - Catnip Reservoir is located in northern Washoe County on the Sheldon Antelope Range, approximately 50 miles west of Denio Junction.

Catnip Reservoir was opened to fishing for the first time in 1998. The only trout species present in the lake is the Lahontan cutthroat trout. The reservoir receives little pressure due to its short season and remoteness. Data collected in 2003 from the angler survey box located at the lake indicated a catch rate of 3.7 fish per hour. Anglers rated their fishing experience and the number of fish caught as +1.57 on a scale of –2 to +2, with +2 being the best. Catch rates were 1.72 fish per hour with the majority of cutthroat running between 12 and 14 inches in length. Thirty-five percent of the catch was 16 inches or greater in length.

Misc Info: - Regulations – Catnip Reservoir, its tributaries and outlet stream are open to fishing from September 1 through November 15, any hour of the day or night. Limit is 0 trout, catch and release fishing only. Only artificial lures with single barbless hooks may be used.

Boating Regulations – Federal regulations for the Sheldon National Wildlife Refuge state that anglers may bank fish, fish by wading, or use non-motorized boats, boats with electric motors, float tubes and similar floatation devices.
