Expect 4WD conditions to get to Wilson Reservoir

Wilson Reservoir - Mountain City, NV (Elko County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

No recent reports, but with the recent snows, expect 4WD conditions to get here. At last report fishing was good here and the water was clearing but the lake level was still low. Use the same techniques as at South Fork Reservoir. Shore anglers were having success fishing rooster tails, spoons, Rapalas, or bait fishing a worm under a bobber. Fly fishermen were having the best luck using leeches, wooly buggers and chironomids. Bass fishing was slow to poor. With low water conditions the boat ramp is unusable so canoes, small cartopper boats and float tubes are the way to go for those wanting to get on the water.
