Water Condition
Water Temperature  


Conditions : WILDHORSE RESERVOIR: With the recent cold weather the surface water temperatures have cooled down into the mid 50’s. With this week’s projected highs in the 70’s the conditions are ripe for some great trout fishing here. With the cooler temps and the high winds of last weekend, the algae should start disappearing. The water along the state park beach has been fairly clear for the past couple of weeks. Expect fish to start moving into the southern end of the lake as the water cools down. Most shore anglers are having success using PowerBait or worms. Launching large boats is not recommended at all. Only car toppers or boats that can be hand carried to the water are recommended. Fly rodders continue to have some success with buggers, hare’s ears, leech patterns and chironomids fished from float tubes or kick boats. Just make sure you are using a full sink line and give it time to get the flies down deep. If fishing chironomids a slip-strike indicator allowing you to fish the fly right on the bottom with a floating line.
