Bite Has Been on in The Mornings

Topaz Lake - Gardnerville, NV

by Doug Busey

I have fished a few times over the last few weeks with my fishing partner Tom Blotter. We have been trolling the deeper waters and have noticed the bite has been an early one. Rapalas on top and blades with a night crawler have been most productive. Last week we caught and released 18 fishing the 10 to 14 inch class with a couple over 18". Shore fishing has been very spotty. We personally did not see any fish being caught by shore anglers last week. But a few anglers have reported they caught 2-4 fish. Mainly early morning. The Topaz lake derby is not on this year. But the general store is still the place to have your picture taken for the Naw report as well as being out up on the wall of fame at the store. For more information call the Topaz lake general store at 775-266-3338.

Good luck on your next fishing adventure. If you have a question. a report in our local fishing area or have a photo of your catch, send it to [email protected]. Hope to see you on the waters. Good fishin' and tight lines.
