Fishing has been good for 9-to-15-inch trout

Jakes Creek Reservoir (Boies Reservoir) - Wells, NV (Elko County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Jakes Creek Reservoir is maintaining a good water level and the weeds are only now starting to increase.  Fishing has been good for 9-to-15-inch trout and largemouth bass up to 14 inches.  Mid-summer temperatures will slow down trout angling, especially as the weeds continue to increase.  Bass fishing should remain fair to good throughout the summer, but could be hampered by vegetation, making angling from a boat, tube or kayak much more successful.  Some channel catfish, up to 20 inches, have also been reported.
