Fishing Will Likely Continue to be Great!

Hobart Reservoir - Washoe County, NV (Washoe County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Fishing has been excellent. Although, fishing did slow slightly during the mid-summer heat. Hobart has been very popular this year which has demanded lighter lines and tippets to catch fish.  Dry fly fishing has been excellent when the wind is calm with small terrestrials and a few callibaetis mayflies in the afternoons.  Small parachute Adams are an excellent choice for matching the callibaetis at Hobart.  Parachute or foam ants are also pretty hard to beat at Hobart.  Fishing along the shoreline and around weed beds with damsel adults has had its moments this year.  It’s hard to beat dry fly fishing with an adult damselfly. Tiger trout have been reported up to 16”, rainbows to 14”, and a few brook trout pushing 13” this season.  Fishing will likely continue to be great until the end of the season.
