Wilson Reservoir Fishing Report

Wilson Reservoir - Mountain City, NV (Elko County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Wilson has the best water quality of the larger reservoirs in eastern Nevada with little algae growth though the water temperatures are hitting the mid 70’s in the afternoon. Trout were averaging 12 to 15 inches in the lake. Expect similar conditions to South Fork and anglers should use the same presentations. The usual PowerBait or worms work well. Gold, green and yellow, or black and yellow spinners are working. Fly fishermen should be using chironomids, mayfly nymphs and emergers, damselfly nymphs/dries or black crystal buggers for best results. Lots of small bass are being caught, but not a lot of keeper sized.
