The bass bite is good

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

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

The water level is very low as water is being drawn out for irrigation and the usual evaporation for this time of year.  Surface water temperatures are in the high 70’s and the weeds are making shore fishing difficult.  The bass bite is good for eight to 12-inch bass using soft plastic dark colored grubs and spinnerbaits.  Trout fishing is slow to fair and worms seem to be the presentation of choice for trout, though small spinners should also work for those who want to throw some hardware. Just get the presentation down deep to the cooler water.  Fly rodders should be using chironomids, PT nymphs, hare’s ears, small black or olive buggers and leeches. The usual dries such as Adams, Griffith’s gnats, PMD’s and damselfly dries may still work early in the morning.
