Cold Creek Reservoir is at 90 percent of capacity

Cold Creek Reservoir - Eureka, NV (White Pine County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Cold Creek Reservoir is at 90% of capacity with rainbow trout and tiger trout being caught in the 9-to-12-inch range.  There is potential for some trout to be larger, however, they have not had too long to grow following the 2021 draw down of the reservoir to fix the outlet structure.

Anglers will do well fishing for trout using a variety of spinners, nightcrawlers, and PowerBait. Fly rodders can match the hatch and use damsel fly patterns, midge patterns, or wooly buggers.  There is a limited black bass fishery and anglers are encouraged to catch and release these bass to help improve the fishery. About 200 large mouth bass were stocked 5/23/24.
