Topaz Lake Fishing Report

Topaz Lake - Gardnerville, NV

by Doug Busey

The Topaz Lodge derby is over and the final results have not come in as yet. The lake level has actually come up. I did not think they could put more water in it. There has been some cloudy water on the south end of the lake, due to the inlet was opened a few times last week. Make sure to watch for floating debris while on the lake. The Douglas County campground is open and will now be taking reservations campsites if desired. You can contact the Douglas County parks Dept for more information. Both California and Nevada licenses are valid on Topaz Lake. The fishing has slowed down a little from last week. I fished with fellow angler Tom Blotter last week. We managed 13 fish to the boat averaging 12 to 15 inches. Best action has been with Raplas of flashers and a half of a night crawler. Shore anglers have been using green Powerbait or inflated night crawlers.

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.
