There Will Be 750 Trophy Trout Stocked This Week

Willow Creek Reservoir - Tuscarora, NV (Elko County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

There will be 750 trophy trout stocked in Willow Creek Reservoir this week. This time of year, fishing tends to pick up for both trout and warmwater species as the water warms. Look for trout, crappie and bass to cruising along the bank in the shallower water in the early morning and then fish will move out to the deeper sections of the reservoir. You can also access a significant proportion of the via boat, so bring your boat and troll the depths for the larger trout that are hold over from last year. The warmwater fishery should really start to pick up for both crappie and bass.

Fish have been taken on both lures and flies. A spinner, damsel fly nymph, or small jig should be productive this time of the year and as the water warms.
