Squaw Creek Reservoir - Gerlach, NV (Washoe County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Fall is an excellent time to fish Squaw. Fishing can be productive through the winter months especially on the northwest portion of the reservoir where warm springs keep water temperatures up.  Fishing for rainbow and brown trout in the deeper portions of the reservoir in the winter can also be productive in areas free of ice. Anglers can get away with fairly large flies and lures during the prime fall months. Dark conehead woolly buggers are pretty hard to beat out of a boat near the dam through the fall and winter.
