Fishing for trout has been fair to good

Wilson Reservoir - Mountain City, NV (Elko County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Very little change here.  With surface water temperatures dropping into the high 40’s, fishing for trout has been fair to good while bass fishing is just fair.  Time to switch to blade baits and crankbaits for bass.  For the bait anglers, worms seem to be working better than PowerBait for trout.  Spin fishermen should be using blue or green spinners with silver blades.  Fly rodders should have some success with leech and wooly bugger patterns.  Nymphs include blue copper Johns, hares ears, PT’s and chironomids. The boat ramp is out of the water and is unusable. Cartopper craft only advised.
