Illipah Reservoir Fishing Report

Illipah Reservoir - Ely, NV (White Pine County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Fishing has been good first thing in the morning for anglers and the water level, while lower, is still good. A few anglers report 20-30 fish mornings starting at sunup and fishing until about 10:00 am. Most anglers have been using worms, PowerBait, and spinners. Hares ears, damsel fly nymphs, sheep creek specials, and olive or black wooly buggers are the ticket for fly fishermen. Browns should start becoming more active as we get closer to their spawn in late September, early October.
