Expect ice along the edges and weeds

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

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

The water level is low with no recent report, but expect ice along the edges and weeds. At last report the bass bite was poor while trout fishing was good. With the colder temperatures the weeds should be dying and shore access should improve except for the ice. Trout fishing has been good from a float tube or small boat. A worm fished under a bobber 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, scuds, PT nymphs, hare’s ears, small black or wine buggers and leeches.
