Jakes Creek Reservoir Fishing Report

Jakes Creek Reservoir (Boies Reservoir) - Wells, NV (Elko County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Fishing has been fair to good here for both trout bass, though expect the bass bite to be slower. Anglers will probably not catch many bass, but the ones they catch should be larger in size. The weeds are dying off, but a canoe or float tube will still give you an advantage over fishing from shore. For trout, worms or PowerBait are effective along with black and gold, red and black, or red and gold spinners. Fly rodders should be using damsel fly nymphs, prince nymphs, hares ears, pheasant tail (PT) nymphs and wooly buggers in olive or brown. Shore fishing is almost impossible due to the weeds. Anglers will have the best luck using float tubes or small boats casting from open water towards the weeds.
