Wildhorse almost completely ice covered

Wild Horse Reservoir - Owyhee, NV (Elko County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

On Thursday, November 17, Wildhorse was almost completely ice covered. There was just a bit of open water by the bridge in the Hendricks Arm as well as a swimming pool sized area near the mouth of the Hendricks Arm. There is also some open water by the dam that is inaccessible to anglers. The ice is very unsafe and as a general rule not safe until after Christmas. Early ice is very unsafe.
