Topaz Lake Fishing Report

Topaz Lake - Gardnerville, NV

by Doug Busey

The lake level is up and the Douglas County Recreation area is open. The boat ramp is open with all the docks leveled to make an easy launch and retrieval. The real estate on the east side is getting smaller for camping as the water rises. The fishing has been slow, Renee and I ventured out this week and trolled for 4.5 hours with Rapalas and caught three nice rainbows and a smallmouth bass. I spoke to a few other anglers on the docks and they said the fishing was slow as well. Note; There is some construction on highway 395 just south of the Holbrook Jct with up to 30 minute delays. Just past the stateline is a traffic control with 5 to 15 minute delays. The Topaz marina is open for boat mooring and launching.

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.
