Water Temperature  

Conditions : WILDHORSE RESERVOIR: With the above average temperatures, the ice at Wild Horse is starting to deteriorate, but as of Wednesday, Feb 4th, it still had seven inches of safe ice though the edges are opening up. Anglers could still find places to get onto the ice, but care should be taken. In the mornings the ice is slick so use cleats or crampons. The shorelines are also muddy so be careful driving on them. The water depth off of the state park boat ramp is between six and ten feet in depth and trout are being caught about four to six feet under the ice in six to ten feet of water. Most anglers contacted were using either worms or worms in combination with corn. The state park is open to camping. The Wildhorse Trout Derby is February 14 and 15. This year there will also be a tagged fish worth $10,000 if caught. Call 775-313-5528 for more information.
