Illipah Reservoir Fishing Report

Illipah Reservoir - Ely, NV (White Pine County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

At last check the road into the lake still hadn’t been plowed and with the warmer weather expect springtime muddy road conditions so it is 4WD only into the lake. Throw in a set of chains and a shovel so that your fishing trip doesn’t get cut short by getting stuck on the way in. Expect six to 10 inches of ice here but be sure to drill test holes before venturing too far onto the ice. Like the other lakes in the area expect slick conditions on the ice. The usual nightcrawlers or PowerBait should work here as well as dark colored soft plastic jigs tipped with a worm.
