Water Level is Up But Weeds and Algae Have Arrived

Wilson Reservoir - Mountain City, NV

The water level is good but weeds and algae have arrived.  However, the boat ramp is mostly clear of growth right now.  Fishing is slow to fair for 12 to 15-inch trout and good for bass.  Just like other reservoirs, the trout have moved into deeper water. Black leeches have been working for trout, but also have been very good for bass.  Best time for bass seems to be from sunup to about 10:30 am and late evenings.  Trout fishing in deeper water seems to pick up about the time the bass bite starts dying.  Go figure. Wilson was stocked with just under 10,000 trout a few weeks ago.  Please pack your garbage out.
