Wildhorse Reservoir Sponsored by
Date 25-Mar-15
Water Condition
Water Temperature  


Conditions : WILDHORSE RESERVOIR: The lake is approximately 20% of capacity and the surface water temperatures have been rising with the warmer daytime highs. Other than that, not a lot of change here. Fishing continues to be slow for numbers but good for size with fish averaging between 18 and 22 inches. Bait anglers catching fish are using either worms or PowerBait. Anglers are also using a combination of worms with either corn or marshmallows with some success. Surface water temperatures are moving into mid 40’s with the warmer weather. Expect it to continue to climb as the warm days continue. Expect fishing to be slow to fair for a bit until the water starts warming into the low 50’s. With the recent precipitation, expect the shorelines to be muddy, so driving to the water’s edge isn’t recommended. Effective Sunday, March 1, 2015 the limits are back on at Wild Horse Reservoir. So make sure you check the 2015 Nevada Fishing Guide for current regulations and limits. NDOW biologists will re-evaluate the limits as water conditions warrant.
