Water Condition
Water Temperature  


Conditions : WILDHORSE RESERVOIR: The lake is now ice free and yet winter has just hit the lake dumping some much needed snow in the area. Water levels are rising, but ever so slowly and not enough. The shorelines are very soft and driving a vehicle near the lake is not recommended. It is also almost impossible to launch a boat here as the boat ramp is still quite a ways out of the water. Fishing has been fair with most anglers using PowerBait or worms from shore near the state park boat ramp. Fly anglers should be using buggers, chironomids, leeches and hares ears. As the water temperature starts to climb into the upper 40’s over the next couple of weeks expect the fishing to pick up.
