Wildhorse Reservoir Sponsored by
Date 11-Nov-16
Water Condition
Water Temperature  


Conditions : WILDHORSE RESERVOIR: Water quality is good and fishing from both shore and boat is also good with anglers reporting limits of 14 to 18 inch fish with an occasional fish in the low to mid 20’s. The surface water temperature is in the mid 40’s. The lake is around 40% of capacity and the state park boat ramp is still usable, but larger boats will want to use caution. Anglers report good luck from shore. Fly fishermen are having some luck with black or olive wooly buggers, leeches, damsel fly nymphs, hares ears and chironomids under an indicator. Gear anglers should be using minnow type imitations in fire tiger, black over white and blue over white. Bait anglers are having luck with garlic cheese bait, worms and orange PowerBait. Fishing for bass and catfish has been slow. Fishing has been productive in the last cove before the canyon to the dam and in the Hendricks Arm of the lake.
