Reservoir Rebounding From Irrigation and Evaporation

Illipah Reservoir - Ely, NV (White Pine County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

The reservoir continues to rebound from irrigation and summer evaporation and is sitting at approximately 60% of capacity.  The reservoir is 98% ice covered with limited fishing opportunity on the southern end where there is exposed water.  Ice thickness was not checked this week due to safety concerns from recent warm weather.  The roads around the reservoir are very muddy due to snow melt, so any anglers attempting to access the reservoir should be mindful or those conditions. Anglers going onto the ice do so at their own risk.  After this weekend, expect unsafe ice.
