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 trout and just fair for bass. Anglers will probably not catch many bass, but the ones they catch should be larger in size. Last weekend’s weather killed off and then blew some of the weed beds to shore, so shore fishing is getting better, though a float tube or small boat will definitely make fishing easier. 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.
