Fish Have Been Aggressive Enough to Hunt

Hobart Reservoir - Washoe County, NV (Washoe County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

A great place to escape the heat. Strong Callibaetis hatches in the late morning have made for some fun afternoons. Terrestrial fishing is also excellent around shoreline vegetation early and late in the day. Parachute ants, beetles, and damsel adults are all excellent fly patterns at the moment. Fish have also been aggressive enough to hunt down slowly retrieved small nymphs all day in open water. Mayfly, damsels, and dragons are the most prolific insects at the moment. Fish have been seen on the surface feeding pretty actively when the wind is down. Trout average 10 inches in Hobart  but there has been a couple fish over 20 inches reported from the lake in the last two years.
