Conditions : WILDHORSE RESERVOIR: Water levels are around 13% of capacity and most of the algae has died off. While fishing has picked up with more active trout cruising the shallows, don’t expect fishing to be more than fair here for a while, though NDOW did stock the lake with 10,000 catchable rainbows a couple of weeks ago. While fishing has been slow, the trout that are being caught are over 20 inches and they are more active with the clearing cool water. Spinners, night crawlers, PowerBait, minnow imitating lures, wooly and seal buggers, leech patterns, hares ears and chironomids are probably the best bet this time of year at Wild Horse. Make sure you check the current Nevada Fishing Guide for current regulations and limits.
