Topaz Lake Fishing Report

Topaz Lake - Gardnerville, NV

by Doug Busey

Fishing has been fair for those that work for it. I fished with friend Tom last week and we trolled Rapals and Needlefish for 6 hours. We were rewarded with 2 rainbows each ranging 15 to 19 inches. On the weekends the water skiers and jet skiers will be out by about 10am so hold on to your life vest. Some are not so courteous as the angler and will try to impress you with maneuvers and speed. Now if you find your self with nothing to do on Sunday afternoon. Come see me at the annual Firefighters BBQ just in front of the Topaz Marina. On Saturday night at 1am they will wrap the many shoulder roasts with a special marinade and put them into a deep pit to cook all night. The festivities will start at 12 noon and run until 6pm. Live band, dancing, good food, a silent auction along with a verbal auction, and 200 raffle prizes will be available. The lunch with all the fix ins is only $10 a person. Now best of all, you get to share your day with the Topaz Lake Volunteer Fire Fighters and show your appreciation.

Good luck on your next fishing adventure. If you have a question or a report in our local fishing area, call the Naw line at 775-267-9722. If you have a photo of your catch, send it to Hope to see you on the waters. Good fishin' and tight lines.
