Trout Fishing Has Been Good

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 have dropped into the low 50’s to high 40’s.  Fishing is  good for 12 to 15-inch trout and bass fishing is slow.  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.
