Wildhorse Reservoir Fishing Report

Wild Horse Reservoir - Owyhee, NV (Elko County)

As of Thursday, April 1, the lake was still covered with ice, but the edges had softened enough that anglers should stay off.  We are at that in between stage  when it isn’t safe to get on the ice for ice fishing and there isn’t any open water for soft water fishing.  The tailwater below the dam has low flows and the shorelines are 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.  The further downstream you get, the better the flows as the tributaries join the main stem.
