Conditions : WILDHORSE RESERVOIR: The lake has cleared of algae and the aquatic vegetation continues to die off making fishing easier. The lake is a little over 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 and last fall’s stocking is paying off with larger fish. Fly fishermen are having some luck with black or olive wooly buggers, leeches, damsel fly nymphs, hares ears and and chironomids under an indicator. Gear anglers should be using minnow type imitations in fire tiger, black over white and blue over white. Bass fishing has been slow and fishing for catfish has been slow for numbers but good for size. Wild Horse was stocked with approximately 10,000 last week and may get some more over the next month depending upon supply at the hatchery.
