Wild Horse Reservoir Fishing Report

Wild Horse Reservoir - Owyhee, NV (Elko County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

With surface water temperatures well above 70 degrees, trout fishing is slowing down and anglers are having their best luck early in the morning before it gets too hot or by fishing in deeper water. Fishing has been productive for boaters who are fishing between 16 and 18 feet deep. Fishing from shore in the canyon that leads to the dam where the water gets deep quickly has also been productive. Bait fishermen should use the usual worms or PowerBait for trout. Fly rodders should be trying hares ears, PT’s, damselfly nymphs, damsel adults, mayflies and wooly buggers. The campground and fish cleaning station are open and on a first come first served basis. There is road construction on SR-225 between milepost 37 and Lone Mountain Station. During the week drivers can expect up to a 30 minute delays, though on the weekends this shouldn’t be a problem. Construction is expected to continue to the end of August.
