Fishing continues to be good at Wildhorse, 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 and rainbow PowerBait seems to be working well, but anglers report catching trout on worms, spinners, small spoons and evens small minnow imitations.  For fly rodders should be using most common nymph patterns such as hares ears, prince, PT’s and damselfly nymphs.  Other flies to try include leeches, balanced leeches, and wooly buggers. Wildhorse Reservoir was stocked with approximately 15,000 five to six inch channel catfish on Wednesday, April 25.  Approximately 9,000 eight inch fish were stocked in Wildhorse last week. The dock is in the water for boaters to use at the State Park boat ramp.
