Fishing was very good for fly fishermen last weekend

Wilson Reservoir - Mountain City, NV (Elko County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

The road is in good shape and the lake level is still low with the water just starting to touch the concrete at the very bottom of the boat ramp. There is not enough to launch a boat. Fishing was very good for fly fishermen last weekend, with several reporting 40 fish days with trout taking just about any fly that was thrown at them.  The fish were averaging 14 to 18 inches and fat. Angers should use the same presentations and techniques as are being used at South Fork Reservoir.  Since the big question every spring is when will the lake spill, with the low water levels and lack of snow pack, it probably won’t spill this year as it appears the peak snowmelt runoff has already occurred.  Wilson was planted with approximately 12,000 trout on April 1.
