Welcome to Nevada
hile Nevada is sometimes referred to as the drieststate in the Union, anglers new to the Silver State might besurprised to learn what Nevada has to offer. There is anincredible range of angling opportunities, from high alpinelakes in Elko’s Ruby Mountains to desert lakes such as LakeMead near Las Vegas. Nevada is home to over 200 lakesand reservoirs and 600 streams and rivers, which provide
nearly 400,000 surface acres of sport shing opportunity.The majority of Nevada’s shable stillwaters consist of 
man-made reservoirs that vary in size from one acre to the115-mile-long Lake Mead. A good portion of the pristinewaters of Lake Tahoe are within Nevada. The majority of Nevada reservoirs can be reached by road, but many of the600 streams that criss-cross the state can only be reachedby hiking trails.
The sh species in the Silver State are as diverse as
the geography. Coldwater species include native cutthroat,
redband trout and mountain whitesh. Non-native species
include rainbow, brown, brook, and mackinaw trout. Hybridspecies include bowcutts (rainbow/cutthroat) and tiger trout(brook/brown).Warmwater species vary from walleye to bluegill.Smallmouth bass and spotted bass represent a couple of our more recent introductions. Lake Mead and Lake Mohaveare best known for their large stripers that average close to
two pounds, although 20- to-30-pound sh are occasionally
caught. Wipers, a cross between a striped bass and a whitebass, can be found in Lahontan, Rye Patch, Wildhorse, SouthFork and Chimney reservoirs. In northeastern Nevada,
Wildhorse Reservoir, traditionally a trout shery, is also
known as a great spot for yellow perch, especially in winter.
Largemouth bass and channel catsh are found throughout
the state including Lakes Mead and Mohave, and Lahontan,Rye Patch and South Fork reservoirs.Nevada also offers several beautiful lakes and urban
ponds in and around our cities and towns. In Las Vegas,you can drop a line at Sunset, Lorenzi or Floyd Lamb Parks.
In Boulder City, try shing at Boulder City Urban Pond. In
Mesquite, there is Mesquite Pond. In northwestern Nevada,Fallon is home to Liberty Pond. Around Reno/Sparks you’ll
nd sh in Virginia Lake, Paradise Pond, Sparks Marina and
Marilyn’s Pond. Wilson Common and Davis Creek Park
Pond are popular sheries in Washoe Valley and there is
Baily Fishing Pond in Carson City. In Gardnerville, checkout Mitch Park Pond.While you are checking out this year’s Nevada FishingGuide, make sure to read the articles found throughout this
magazine. You can read about the fantastic bass shing
opportunities at Lake Mead on page 24 or check out how
great fall shing can be in the western region of the state onpage 32. Learn about oat tube safety on page 40 or the new
 Aquatic Invasive Species boat stamp program on page 7.
Looking for some tips on shing the Silver State? You
can pick up a How to Fish in Nevada book free at any NDOW
ofce (see page 2 for ofce information). While you’re there,
why not grab a free Fishable Waters of Nevada map. Thesemaps (one for each region in Nevada) detail all of Nevada’s
waters and include the types of sh that can be found.
This publication is meant as a reference for any questions
you might have regarding shing the Silver State. Statewide
regulations and license information can be found near thefront of the magazine (pages 4-12), with a region by regionbreakdown of all available waters throughout the magazine.The Nevada Fishing Guide also includes information fromboating regulations (42-43) to Wildlife Management Areas(44-45) to our Trophy Fish Program (46-47).
