Jiggs is Now Ice Free

Jiggs Reservoir (Zunino Reservoir) - Elko, NV (Elko County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Jiggs is now ice free and there has been a winter kill observed here with dead bass and bluegill seen floating in the water. Hopefully it was a small one.  NDOW will be performing a fish survey here over the next couple of weeks, when shore conditions improve enough to launch a boat, in order to try to determine the extent of fish mortality. The lake will be stocked with trout sometime over the next few weeks when the shoreline dries out enough for the stocking truck.  With the precipitation in the forecast though it may be longer before the heavy fish truck and get in and dump a load of fish.   The shoreline is very muddy and anglers are being asked to keep their vehicles on the roads.
