Illipah Reservoir is still near 90 percent capacity

Illipah Reservoir - Ely, NV (White Pine County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Illipah Reservoir is still near 90% capacity.  Water clarity continues to be excellent.  Surface water temperatures range in the upper-to-mid-60s.  Large weed mats on the south end of the reservoir can be targeted by anglers looking to pick up trout basking in their shade.  Anglers can expect to catch 8-to-10-inch rainbow trout. Due to warm daytime temperatures, anglers should try fishing first thing in the morning or in the evening hours.  A variety of night crawlers, PowerBait, and spinners should produce trout for anglers.
