Some Big Fish Being Caught

Wild Horse Reservoir - Owyhee, NV (Elko County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Wild Horse is covered with an average of about 14 inches of inches of good hard ice with a layer of slush and then a layer of one to three inches of ice on top of the slush. On top of that mess, is about six inches of snow. The top layer of ice is thin enough in places that ATV’s break through into the slush and then get stuck, so keep the ATV’s off of the ice and either walk or use a snowmobile. Expect fishing to be slow for larger fish and slow to fair for 10 to 14 inch fish. However, when anglers are catching large fish they are generally larger than 23 inches and averaging around five pounds! The Wild Horse Trout Derby is on Presidents Day Weekend, Feb. 13 and 14. For more information call the Wild Horse Resort at 775-690-9830.
