Illipah Reservoir - Ely, NV (White Pine County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

This lake is mostly covered in unsafe ice. At last report there was some open water along the north side of the old dam and along the northwestern shoreline that may be productive for anglers if it is still open. Expect 4WD to get into the lake with recent snows. With the warmer weather predicted for the weekend, there may be some open water for fishing. It will be another few weeks before there is safe ice here. Once there is safe ice expect fair to good fishing for 10 to 14-inch trout.
