Worms seem to be the presentation of choice for trout

Jakes Creek Reservoir (Boies Reservoir) - Wells, NV (Elko County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

The lake level is good, though starting to draw down with irrigation. Surface water temperatures have climbed into the mid to high 60’s and the weeds are growing making shore fishing difficult, but not impossible yet. With the warmer water the bass have become active and fishing for them is good using soft plastic dark colored grubs and spinnerbaits. Worms seem to be the presentation of choice for trout, though small spinners should also work for those who want to throw some hardware. Fly rodders should be using chironomids, PT nymphs, hare’s ears, small black or olive buggers and leeches. Dry flies are working as well. The usual dries such as Adams, Griffith’s gnats, PMD’s and damselfly dries are all working.
