Hey folks we still have a couple of spots open for our annual Stillwater Outing. Last year we hammered Rainbows and Smallmouth Bass at Wildhorse Resovoir. The lake is once again in Great shape and should be fishing very similar to last year. We had anglers with 30-40 fish a day on this trip. This is our favorite outing of the year and 90% of our guests have done this trip multiple times with us. It is very addicting. If you want to ask questions or sign up PM me or give me a call. 775.742.1754 Information below.

Wildhorse/Southfork Stillwater Outing

Elko Nevada - May 17 2019

Eastern Nevada has some of the most prolific Stillwater Fisheries in the West. Most of them are still relatively unknown and have very little fishing pressure. Come join us this May for what we consider our best outing of the year fishing around the Ruby Mountains in North East Nevada.

5 years ago, Rob Anderson and Chris Evison were looking for a new place to host outings in the spring season. For years they have held outings at Davis Lake, 5 Dot Reservoir and Frenchman’s Reservoir. Drought in Northern California has taken its toll on these three fisheries and even though the water is back the fishing is not. The fishing opportunities in Eastern Nevada are endless and we have picked two of the best to spend some time at with our clients and friends.

Rob Anderson and Chris Evison have been fishing and teaching anglers advanced Stillwater techniques for over 15 years. Rob is a commercial fly and product designer and also managed the old Reno Fly Shop for years. One of Rob’s specialties is hosting outings and teaching large groups. Chris and Rob have worked and guided together for 17 years. Chris is well known in the area for his knowledge of Pyramid Lake, The East Walker River and numerous other fisheries in the Reno Tahoe area.

The clinic will be a 2 ½ day experience covering Stillwater techniques, proper rigging, and shore line wading as well as float tube, pontoon boat and small pram techniques. There will be lots of free time to practice and catch some big Trout and Bass. Space is limited and we sell out every year.


Friday afternoon – check-in and set up followed by an introduction to the weekend’s events.

Saturday & Sunday - Two full days of fishing and learning new techniques on the lake. Dinner Friday and Saturday nights are included at the campground. Lunch is included on the lake Saturday and Sunday.


We will be set up at one of the campgrounds at the lake. If you prefer not to camp. There are some hotel or cabin Options as well. We will have a comfortable area set up for our Friday evening event and dinner both nights.
