Water Level is Average For This Time of Year

Wilson Reservoir - Mountain City, NV (Elko County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

The water level is average for this time of year and surface water temperatures are hovering around 60 degrees.  Fishing is picking up for chunky 12 to 15-inch trout and for bass.  Just like other reservoirs, the trout are moving up in the water column and into shallower water.  Black leeches have been working for both trout and bass along the weed beds.  Chironomid patterns are also working for trout. Black or dark green spinners with contrasting spots are working for spin fishermen.  For the most part, the same presentations that are used at South Fork, should work here.
