Wild Horse Reservoir Fishing Report

Wild Horse Reservoir - Owyhee, NV (Elko County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

The ice is still in good condition with 15 to 20 inches of good ice with about two to three inches of snow on top as of Thursday. As of Thursday, February 23, the edges were a bit soft making it difficult to get a wheeled vehicle onto the ice. However, with temperatures expected to be below freezing all weekend, chances are they will harden and anglers should be able to drive ATV’s onto the ice. Fishing has been slow with the unsettled weather, but with good weather and a new moon coming up it should improve. Rainbow PowerBait with garlic scent has been working as has worms and jigging with jigs or spinners. Look for water depths of four to ten feet and fish about three feet below the bottom of the ice using a jig tipped with a worm or some PowerBait. The sledding hill and the ice skating rink are up and running. The campground is open.
