Wildhorse is covered in unsafe ice with pressure ridges.  No fishing reports from here until it is safe, which will probably be around Christmas. Once the ice is safe expect fishing for both perch and trout to be good.  Fall surveys showed good numbers of quality healthy trout and lots of keeper sized perch in the creel.  The river below the dam has low flows and the shorelines are very icy but fishing the pools has been fair to good using streamer patterns and nymphs for fly fishermen and minnow imitation lures for spin fishermen.  Wildhorse was stocked with just over 100,000 trout in 2020.
