Illipah Reservoir Fish Report for 4-23-2022
Anglers will do well with a variety of night crawlers, PowerBait, and spinners.
Illipah Reservoir - Ely, NV (White Pine County)
by Nevada Department of Wildlife
The lake ice free. The reservoir is at approximately 60% of capacity and slowly rising. Fishing has been good. Anglers will do well with a variety of night crawlers, PowerBait, and spinners. For bait anglers nightcrawlers and rainbow PowerBait are the best bet. Small spinners, spoons and Kastmasters in gold for those throwing hardware should work. For fly rodders, this time of year chironomid patterns (midge larva) are recommended as they can make up as much as 80% of the trout’s diet in the spring in our high desert reservoirs. Black or olive wooly buggers and black, olive or wine-colored leech patterns should also catch trout.
