Water Condition
Water Temperature  


Conditions : WILDHORSE RESERVOIR: The water is very green with algae and has dropped about five feet with the irrigation season in full swing. Fishing has been slow for all species. Trollers are having the best luck, but it is still slow for them as well. Fly fishermen are having the best luck with black or olive wooly buggers, leeches, damsel fly nymphs and hares ears. Gear anglers are having success with minnow type imitations in fire tiger, black over white and blue over white. Trout have moved into deeper water with surface water temperatures in the 70’s. Shore anglers should look for shorelines that drop off quickly so they can reach deeper water. Several anglers report good success for catfish ranging in size from five to ten pounds. Anglers may now keep one black bass, 15 inches or longer.
