24 Inches of Ice, Slush and Snow

Wild Horse Reservoir - Owyhee, NV (Elko County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

There is approximately a combined 24 inches of ice, slush and snow.  With the warmer weather next week expect the slush to increase so go prepared with good boots.  The ice is still safe, but getting around on an ATV may become difficult.  Fishing for trout and perch has slowed a bit, so we are downgrading the report from good to fair.  Trout can still be caught in fairly shallow water (eight to 12 feet deep) close to shore.  Some trout have been caught off the rock face just south of the state park boat ramp as well as in Penrod and Hendricks Arms.  Perch are found in deeper water so fish water that is 25 to 30 feet deep and put your presentation less than a foot off of the bottom.  Most of the perch reported being caught were by the island off of the state park boat ramp.
