Wild Horse Reservoir Fishing Report

Wild Horse Reservoir - Owyhee, NV (Elko County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Very little change at Wildhorse Reservoir.  The dock is in the water for boaters to use at the State Park boat ramp. Fishing has been good with fish averaging 14 to 18 inches with the occasional 20+ inch fish coming in.  Anglers report success all along the state park shoreline, Hendricks arm, Penrod and north to the last cove before the canyon to the dam.  On the west side, fishing has been good near the warm springs.  Sherbet PowerBait seems to be working well, but anglers report catching trout on worms, spinners, small spoons and evens small minnow imitations.  For fly rodders, chironomids are still key, though most common nymph patterns as well as wooly buggers are working. Wildhorse Reservoir was stocked with approximately 15,000 five to six inch channel catfish on Wednesday, April 25.
