Hobart Reservoir in Nevada has fished well in the last week

Hobart Reservoir - Washoe County, NV (Washoe County)

by Reno Fly Shop

Many waters have opened up in the high country in the last few weeks. Hobart Reservoir in Nevada has fished well in the last week. The reservoir has come alive with many different insects. Rainbow Trout, Brook Trout, and Tiger Trout all live in the lake and are more than willing to eat a well presented fly. The shallow end of the lake consists of continuous weed beds. A dry/dropper rig can fish very well in this zone and will rack up numbers of brook trout. A simple Parachute Adams in size 12 or a Para Madam X in a size 8 will get the job done. Below the dry, you’ll want to place a dropper anywhere between 1-3 feet below. If moving over to the deeper end near the dam, intermediate and sink 3 fly lines will get flies down to feeding fish. Leeches, buggers,and damsels will all put fish in the net.

Flies we Suggest: Parachute Adams, Parachute Madam X, Hale Bopp, BH Wooly Bugger, Red Eye Damsel, jigged Mini Leech, Panty Dropper Hopper
