Still 50 Percent Covered in Ice

Wild Horse Reservoir - Owyhee, NV (Elko County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Wildhorse is still about 50% covered with ice, as of Thursday, April 18, and the shorelines are very muddy. With the warmer temperatures expect the lake to be completely ice free soon.  Fishing had been good through the ice and expect it to continue this spring.  The usual PowerBait and worms for bait anglers and for fly fishermen this is chironomid season, so midge larva and emerger patterns as well as hares ears, PT nymphs and wooly buggers. The lake is very close to spilling and this should be a good year for fishing.
