Fishing Has Been Good

Wilson Reservoir - Mountain City, NV (Elko County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Fishing has been good with anglers catching fish using a variety of presentations.  For the bait anglers, worms seem to be working better than PowerBait.  Spin fishermen should be using black spinners with gold blades.  Fly rodders were having good luck with purple wooly buggers.  Since Wilson often fishes similar to South Fork, bring the chironomid patterns.  The water level is down about 6 feet, and chances are that the lake won’t spill this year.  The road has been graded and is in good condition.
