Wilson Reservoir Fishing Report

Wilson Reservoir - Mountain City, NV

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

The spillway is dry. Fishing conditions should be similar to South Fork. With water temperatures in the mid 70’s by midday, trout are holding deeper. Most of them are being caught between 10 and 13 feet deep, holding just off of the bottom. Trollers have had luck along the western shore around the boat ramp and shore anglers have had some success off the rocky point by the boat ramp. Fly rodders report using soft hackle hare’s ears fished under a slip strike indicator and using bead head flies or split shot to get the flies down. Bass fishing is picking up, but the biologist responsible for this water says not to expect limits of keeper bass this year. Wilson was stocked in early June with 4000 rainbow trout.
