Conditions : WALL CANYON RESERVOIR: Fishing for trout has been great while the smallmouth fishing has been good. Trout fishing has been best early and late in the shallows or in deep water during the day. Trout are actively cruising the shallows for damsels and other insects when the sun is off the water. Bass fishing has been best from a boat with jigs and spoons off the deeper points along the south shore. Both chartreuse and crayfish colored lures and flies work very well year-round at Wall.

About: - Wall Canyon Reservoir is a man made reservoir and covers 133 surface acres with a maximum depth of 55 feet. Smallmouth bass, Wall Canyon suckers, bowcut trout (rainbow x cutthroat hybrid), rainbow trout, brown trout and speckled dace are presently found in the reservoir. Results from 2003 creel census found that anglers averaged 0.8 fish per hour. Spring, early summer (through June) and fall are the best times to fish. Bonus: the reservoir also contains an abundance of large crayfish. Many sportsmen drive to Wall Canyon just for the crayfish. They can be captured with crayfish traps, hook-and-line or minnow traps with the ends widened. Attach chicken parts to the traps as bait.

Camping: Unimproved. Things to consider: roads may be muddy in spring or after rain. Reservoir is turbid (muddy). Lures and/or flies should be dark and/or make noise.

Access – From Reno, travel 30 miles east on Interstate 80. Turn north onto Highway 447 at Wadsworth. Travel 135 miles through Gerlach turning right onto a dirt road marked by a windmill just north of Duck Flat. Continue 8 miles along this dirt road to Wall Canyon Reservoir.
