Reservoir Continues To Fill

Illipah Reservoir - Ely, NV (White Pine County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

The reservoir continues to fill with spring runoff and is turbid at the inlet end.  The lake is ice free, approximately 85% full and fishing is fair to good.  The usual spring time flies of wooly buggers, prince nymphs, hares ears and chironomid patterns should all work.  Small spinners, PowerBait and worms should be effective as well. The lake is turbid so spin fishermen may want to use flashy lures.  The roads around the reservoir are soft muddy due to the wet winter and recent rain, so any anglers attempting to access the reservoir should be mindful of these conditions and stay on the gravel.
