Illipah Reservoir - Ely, NV (White Pine County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Illipah Reservoir is at 98% capacity and water is starting to enter the spillway.  Water temperatures are sitting at 400F.  Fall stocking was completed with 9,862 rainbow trout averaging 9.4 inches. Water clarity is excellent with weed mats beginning to drop off for the year.  Shoreline fishing has been productive this fall with anglers using PowerBait, spinners, and night crawlers.  Anglers fishing from small watercraft are able to access much of the reservoir that shoreline anglers cannot, resulting in more fish being caught.
