Excellent reports coming from Onion

Onion Valley Reservoir - Denio, NV (Humboldt County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Excellent reports coming from Onion. Definitely one of the best fishing reservoirs this season in Nevada. Catch rates continue to be excellent with some trout to 14”-16” reported recently. Spin fisherman using small spinner, jigs, and spoons are finding fish in deeper water and away from vegetation. Fly fisherman trolling woolly buggers and leech patterns behind float tubes in deeper water are hooking up all day long. Windless mornings and evenings have had plenty of fish feeding on the surface. The callibaetis mayfly and midge adults can be imitated pretty easily at onion with a parachute adams.
