Welcome to Nevada
 you have never shed in Nevada before you probably have a pessimistic attitude about your angling opportunities in the Silver State. You’ve been told it’s the driest state in the Union and informed that Nevada is just one big desert with a few casinos sprinkled here and there, but no sh. Well we’re here to tell you that whoever told you those stories most likely shes in Nevada and just wants to keep one of the best secrets in the West all to themselves. The Silver State is actually home to over 200 lakes and reservoirs and more than 600 streams and rivers, providing nearly 400,000 surface acres of sports shing opportunity. From high alpine lakes in Elko’s Ruby Mountains to desert lakes like Lake Mead near Las Vegas, Nevada has a wide range of shing opportunities. The majority of Nevada’s shable stillwaters consist of man-made reservoirs that vary in size from one acre to the 115-mile-long Lake Mead and a good portion of the world famous waters of Lake Tahoe are within Nevada. The majority of Nevada reservoirs can be reached by road, but many of the 600 streams that criss-cross the state can only be reached by hiking trails. The sh species in the Silver State are as diverse as the geography. Coldwater species include native cutthroat trout, redband trout and mountain whitesh. Non-native species include rainbow, brown, brook and mackinaw trout. Hybrid species 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 Mohave are 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 white bass, can be found in Lahontan, Rye Patch, Wildhorse, South Fork 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. If you’re looking for some fantastic shing opportunities but you don’t want to leave the city, Nevada offers over 20 urban ponds across the state. While you are checking out this year’s Nevada Fishing Guide, make sure to read the articles found throughout this magazine. You can read about the angling opportunities at South Fork Reservoir on page 17 or learn about our urban sheries on page 22. If you’re looking to take a kid shing for the rst time, you denitely need to check our helpful tips on 30. This publication is intended as a reference for any questions you might have regarding shing the Silver State. Statewide regulations and license information can be found near the front of the magazine (pages 6-10), with a region by region breakdown of all available waters throughout the magazine. The Nevada Fishing Guide also includes information from boating regulations (38-39) to Wildlife Management Areas (40-41) to our Trophy Fish Program (42- 43). If you can’t nd something in this publication, check out the Nevada Department of Wildlife website at ndow.org.
