With the incredibly wet winter the Nevada Department of Wildlife was able to stock trout at Lahontan Reservoir for the first time in over 20 years. In June 5,500 rainbow trout were stocked on the Churchill County side of the reservoir. Lahontan fish populations were hit particularly hard by the prolonged drought and these trout will give anglers another thing to look forward to this fall and winter. Additional stocking of walleye, wiper, crappie, and channel catfish have taken place and some folks are already catching them. Fishing will remain fair through the spring when stocking efforts will resume.
