Topaz Lake Fishing Report

Topaz Lake - Gardnerville, NV

by Liz Weirauch

Topaz Lake is still good and high. Reports from Float Tubers at the inlet area had great reports of trout all over 2 pounds. The bass are starting to show up,'big unglies', buggers, dead drift cray fish. THE CARP are still in the shallows, not in the high numbers a few weeks ago, but can still be targeted in that area. (if you haven't done carp fishing, come in and ask.. it's a hoot!) Olive buggers, damsel nymphs, Carp flies, crayfish patterns and a very stout 8 weight rod.

If fishing the LAKE of Topaz, a CA (OR) an NV.. if you turn to do the outlet (Topaz Canal) you must have a NV license. As is, turning to the inlet, you would have to have a CA license. Be informed the Canal area is now marked NO Trespassing about 2 miles from head wall (It is private property, see report West Walker, NV).
