Wildhorse Reservoir Sponsored by

Water Condition
Water Temperature  


Conditions : WILDHORSE RESERVOIR: Wildhorse is not only ice free, but it is spilling! You can launch a boat and the boat dock is in the water. For the first time in a few years, the boat ramp is under water and ready for use. Fishing has been slow to fair for trout as the water temperature is still in the mid 40’s. Expect bass fishing to be slow this year as the bass fishery recovers from the drought. Bait fishermen should use the usual worms or PowerBait here. Garlic PowerEggs of just about any color seem to work very well. 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.
