TOPAZ LAKE - The lake level is still high, but has come down about a foot over the last couple weeks. The shore anglers have been catching the larger fish with green garlic powerbait or night crawlers. I have been fishing with fellow angler and friend Tom Blotter from Minden NV. We have been all over the lake in various depths. We have been averaging 30 to 40 fish a trip with only one or two over the 2 pound range on each trip. Trollers have been using blades and a night crawler or Rapalas lures. With the water going down slowly, there is a little more room for shore anglers. The Topaz Landing Marina is open for boat launching and mooring. If you do not have a boat, they offer rentals. For more information call Chuck Fields at 775-266-3550.

Good luck on your next fishing adventure. If you have a question. a report in our local fishing area or have a photo of your catch, send it to [email protected]. Hope to see you on the waters. Good fishin' and tight lines.
