Expect Good Conditions for Bass!

Wilson Reservoir - Mountain City, NV (Elko County)

by Aaron Meier

The water is down seasonally due to irrigation, but expect good conditions for bass and fair for trout. The boat ramp is still in the water so anglers are able to launch boats.  Bass are hitting top water gear including blue damselfly adult flies as well as poppers and spinner baits when the wind dies down.  Dark soft plastic grubs are also working for bass.  Trout are hitting damselfly nymphs, olive or black wooly buggers, hares ears, PT nymphs, red copper Johns, red brassies and chironomid patterns.  Fish for trout between 10 and 15 feet below the surface.  Bass are being caught along the riprap in the canyon and along the north shore.  Best place for trout appears to be in the canyon by the dam.
