Best Trout Fishing Takes Place Between Early March and June

Kirch Wildlife Management Area - Preston, NV (Nye County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

There are no updates on fishing action at the management area. As a rule, the best trout fishing of the year takes place between early March and June. The fish are hungry and weed growth has not yet become an issue. Effective bait options include worms, PowerBait, spinners, lures and fly patterns. Rooster Tails, Mepp’s and Panther Martin spinners are generally good options. So too are ‘Lil Jakes and Super Dupers. Bead head Woolly Buggers in green colors are generally effective as temperatures continue to warm up.
