Trout Fishing Has Been Good

Wilson Reservoir - Mountain City, NV

With surface water temperatures approaching 60 degrees, fishing for trout has been good and bass has been fair.  For the bait anglers, worms seem to be working better than PowerBait for trout.  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. Dark colored soft plastics and fire tiger/perch colored crankbaits are working for bass. 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.
