Conditions : WILDHORSE RESERVOIR: Very little change here as fishing has been slow to fair for trout, slow for bass and wipers, and fair for catfish. The lake was stocked with approximately 80,000 fish this year as part of the process of rebuilding the fishery here. Half of the stocked fish were fry and half were catchable eight to ten inch fish. Fishing is starting to improve with the stockings, but just like after the 2007 die-off, it will take two to three years before anglers are catching trophy sized fish. There are some carryover trout in the lake from stocking a few years ago that are averaging around 23 inches and last fall’s stocked fish are averaging around 15 inches. Fly fishermen are having the best luck with black or olive wooly buggers, leeches, damsel fly nymphs and hares ears. 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.
