Several years of record drought in Nevada has been followed by a year of record precipitation.

Nevada fishing is back.


Whether looking at the state overall or by region, Nevada angler’s expect an exciting year of fishing.  Although the terrain and temperature of Nevada fishing waters can vary greatly, one thing’s for certain, there’s plenty of water to go around for now.

  • Southern Region-Known for warm water fishing year round, anglers in this Nevada fishing region have been out on the water for the past few months.  Lake Mead has been reportedly doing well for anglers with plenty of small and large mouth bass, and the Willow Beach area of Lake Mojave have anglers reporting good results for stripers.
  • Eastern Region-Reports from Comins Lake indicate good fishing from both trolling and shore fishing.  Especially good stocking reports with NDOW planning over 13,000 fish over the past month in these waters.
  • Western Region-Very cool weather for spring and high water flows have delayed anglers from the typical spring fishing in Nevada.  Waiting for the flows in Truckee to subside a bit, with flows throughout June running between 3000-4000 CFS, however reports indicate some brown and rainbow trout are being caught with some regularity.

With high water flows running consistently fairly high throughout the state, safety is of the utmost concern whether shore fishing or using watercraft, so use lifejackets and plan for cool/cold water conditions.
