Wildhorse Reservoir Sponsored by
Date 15-Jun-15
Water Condition
Water Temperature  


Conditions : WILDHORSE RESERVOIR: Fishing has been fair for quantity, but good for size with trout averaging around 20 inches in length. Water temperatures are in the mid 60’s and climbing quickly. Both smallmouth and wipers are being caught as well as trout. Bait anglers are having the best luck with a worm/marshmallow combination, followed by sparkle PowerBait in rainbow or sherbet colors. Flyrodders are using wooly buggers, leeches, copper Johns, PT nymphs, prince nymphs and hares ears. The best areas seem to be on the east side of the lake along the beach to the north of the State Park boat ramp, the mouth of Hendricks Arm, the last cove before the canyon and the canyon by the dam. The limits are back on at Wild Horse Reservoir. Make sure you check the current Nevada Fishing Guide for current regulations and limits. NDOW biologists will re-evaluate the limits as water conditions warrant.
