Water Temperature  

Conditions : WILDHORSE RESERVOIR: Very little change here as Wildhorse continues to receive a lot of snow melt keeping the water level very high and there is a lot of water going over the spillway as well as lots of water still in the form of snow in the basin. You can launch a boat and the boat dock is in the water. Surface water temperatures have climbed into the 60’s and fishing for trout is good. Anglers report some good fishing in the Hendricks Arm, near the warm springs on the west side and in the last cove before the canyon by the highway. Anglers have also had luck at the south end of the luck by the old road bed wear Hot Creek enters the lake. Expect bass fishing to be slow this year as the bass fishery recovers from the drought. If you do catch some smallmouth, they must be returned immediately to the water until July 1. Bait fishermen should use the usual worms or PowerBait here. Garlic PowerEggs of just about any color seem to work very well, though one angler reports a limit of nice fish using pink marshmallows tipped with worms. Spin fishermen should be using spinners and minnow imitators like Rapalas. This time of year gold, black and gold, or green and gold spinners work well. For the minnow imitating lures, black over white or silver, dark blue over white or silver and dark green over white or silver work well. Fly rodders should be using chironomids, hares ears, PT’s and wooly buggers. The campground is open and is on a first come first served basis. Wildhorse received approximately 6,300 catchable trout last week bringing this year’s total to over 42,000 fish stocked this year.
