Topaz Lake Fishing Report

Topaz Lake - Gardnerville, NV

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Fishing is starting to slow down. Trout were holding at 20 plus foot depth but downriggers were moderately successful during July, lake stratification will get worse during August and trout will be squeezed down until temps cool in the Fall. No bass reports but fishing should be good if you can get a boat out. (county ramp is closed, launching from the beach near the outlet structure is still OK though) Boat anglers should try using Rapalas and nightcrawlers behind dodgers. Shore fishermen should try PowerBait, Power Eggs, salmon eggs, and nightcrawlers.
