Wrapping up the Work on the Dam!

Willow Creek Reservoir - Tuscarora, NV (Elko County)

by Aaron Meier

Due to a damaged outflow structure, the lake has completely drained.  Barrick Gold is in the process of wrapping up the work on the dam.  Unfortunately, with a mild winter, the snow pack isn’t enough to allow the capture of water this summer.  NDOW, along with Barrick, will be performing some habitat improvements to the bottom of the lake later this summer while the lake is empty to provide cover for crappie and other fish.
