Water Level is Very Low

Jiggs Reservoir (Zunino Reservoir) - Elko, NV (Elko County)

by Aaron Meier

No change here as fishing for bass is fair to good, while for trout it is slow to fair.  The water level is very low, which have the fish concentrated and there is some algae and weeds around the edges.  PowerBait, nightcrawlers, and dark spinners with some red or yellow accents seem to be working.  Brown or olive nymphs as well as red copper Johns and blood worm patterns for fly fishermen are good choices.  Black wooly buggers and seal buggers are also worth a try.  Poppers on still mornings and evenings are working for the bass, otherwise dark soft plastic grubs are the way to go.
