Topaz Lake Fishing Report

Topaz Lake - Gardnerville, NV

by Angler's Edge Fly Shop

Topaz Lake is still good. Still getting nice reports at the inlet area and have gotten reports that the bass are still very active along the rocky shelves. The bass will certianly hit 'big unglies', buggers, dead drift cray fish. THE CARP are leaving the shallows, but can still be targeted in that southern 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. FYI the canal temps were at 76 degrees coming out of the lake. Not good for C & R.
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).
