The lake level has increased by about a foot

Topaz Lake - Gardnerville, NV

by Doug Busey

The lake level has increased by about a foot. Fishing has been inconsistent, with good days followed by slow ones. Trollers have been more successful in the early morning hours on the west shore using Flashers, Rapalas, or needlefish lures. As the day progresses, stay on the west side but move out to depths of 25 to 35 feet and keep your presentation deep. Shore anglers have had fair success with salmon peach or green PowerBait.

Good luck on your next fishing adventure. If you have a question. a report in our local fishing area or have a photo of your catch, send it to [email protected]. Hope to see you on the waters. Good fishin' and tight lines.
