Wild Horse Reservoir Fishing Report

Wild Horse Reservoir - Owyhee, NV (Elko County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Wildhorse is full and spilling with lots of water still to melt out of the snowpack. You can launch a boat and the boat dock is in the water. For the first time in a few years, the boat ramp is under water and ready for use. Fishing fair for trout but is starting to pick up as the surface water temperature is climbing into the 50’s. Anglers report some good fishing in the Hendricks Arm. Expect bass fishing to be slow this year as the bass fishery recovers from the drought. Bait fishermen should use the usual worms or PowerBait here. Garlic PowerEggs of just about any color seem to work very well. Spin fishermen should be using spinners and minnow imitators like Rapalas. This time of year gold, black and gold, or green and gold spinners work well. For the minnow imitating lures, black over white or silver, dark blue over white or silver and dark green over white or silver work well. Fly rodders should be using chironomids, hares ears, PT’s and wooly buggers. The campground is open and is on a first come first served basis.
