Jakes Creek Reservoir Fishing Report

Jakes Creek Reservoir (Boies Reservoir) - Wells, NV (Elko County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Fishing has been good here for trout and fair to good for bass. Worms or PowerBait are effective along with black and gold spinners. Fly rodders should be using damsel fly nymphs, prince nymphs, hares ears, pheasant tail (PT) nymphs and wooly buggers in olive or brown. Catfish are starting to show up in the creel. Shore access is good right now, but soon this water will start to grow weeds making shore fishing difficult. This water was stocked in late April with 3000 rainbow trout. On May 26, the lake was stocked with 500 six inch catfish. They will be of a catchable size next summer.
