Fishing is Good

Wild Horse Reservoir - Owyhee, NV (Elko County)

Fishing is good here and the dock is in the water.   The usual PowerBait and worms for bait anglers have been working.  For fly fishermen, this is chironomid season, so midge larva and emerger patterns as well as hares ears,  and PT nymphs.  Black or olive wooly buggers were taking fish as well. Anglers should be aware that many of the shorelines are muddy and vehicles should stay away from the shoreline.  The water is clearing and most anglers are fishing Penrod and Hendricks Arms as well as the beach in front of the State Park.  However, fishing appears to be good just about any place on the lake.  Many fish are being caught from shore and be careful not to cast too far out and go past the fish.  No black bass may be kept until July 1. The campground is open and with the weekend shaping up as sunny with highs around 70 degrees, it should be a great weekend for camping and fishing at Wildhorse Reservoir!
