100 percent open water

Illipah Reservoir - Ely, NV (White Pine County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Illipah Reservoir is 100% open water and ~75% of capacity. Angling should be decent, however, the water is murky with recent snowpack runoff.  Anglers can expect to catch 8-to-10-inch Rainbow Trout.  A variety of night crawlers, PowerBait, and spinners should produce trout for anglers.  The road into Illipah Reservoir does have some minor ruts but otherwise access is good.
