Topaz Lake Fishing Report

Topaz Lake - Gardnerville, NV

by Doug Busey

The water level is coming up slowly. Be careful while boating the lake, there is still some debri on the lake from the intake from the Walker River. The east shore had no snow on its banks. Shore fishing was fair for anglers using powerbait or night crawlers. We talked with a couple boaters that had a few nice rainbows. They were using small flashers and a night crawler. Rapalas have also been productive, I would recommend changing up your color pattern to see which is producing better that day. We like to use blk/gold- blk/silver or a perch pattern. Topaz landing is open for boat launching. Boat rentals are not available at this time, but they do offer mooring at the marina. Reminder, the Topaz Lodge is not holding their annual derby this year. But when you visit the lodge, remind them of how much you enjoyed the derby in past years, and how you would like to see it return.

Good luck on your next fishing adventure. If you have a question. a report in our local fishing area or have a photo of your catch, send it to [email protected]. Hope to see you on the waters. Good fishin' and tight lines.
