Wildhorse Reservoir Sponsored by
Date 10-Dec-14
Water Condition
Water Temperature  


Conditions : WILDHORSE RESERVOIR: Totally open water here with not even ice in the back of the coves with the recent 50 degree weather. With the projected daytime highs pushing 50 through next weekend, expect the lake to stay open. Shorelines are very soft and muddy due to recent precipitation, so anglers are discouraged from driving on them. Launching a boat is not recommended at all. Up to this time, fishing has been good here as the few anglers who have made the trip and braved the cold have caught nice fish, and plenty of them. Fly rodders are having success with buggers, hare’s ears, leech patterns and chironomids. Fish the nymphs under an indicator and the buggers and leech patterns with an intermediate sink line in the shallows early in the morning. If fishing chironomids a slip-strike indicator allowing you to fish the fly right on the bottom with a floating line. Bait anglers are having luck with worms and PowerBait. The campground is open year round, though the fish cleaning station is closed.
