Welcome to Nevada
On behalf of the Nevada Department of Wildlife
, we
would like to welcome you to shing in the great state of Nevada. Although widely known as a dry state, Nevada ishome to over 200 lakes and reservoirs and 600 streams andrivers, which provide nearly 400,000 surface acres of sportshing opportunity.Nevada is a land of contrasts, from high alpine lakesin Elko’s Ruby Mountains to desert lakes such as Walker Lake near Hawthorne. The majority of Nevada’s shablestillwaters consist of man-made reservoirs that vary in sizefrom one acre to the 115-mile-long Lake Mead. A goodportion of the pristine waters of Lake Tahoe are withinNevada. The majority of Nevada reservoirs can be reachedby road, but many of the 600 streams that criss-cross thestate can only be reached by hiking trails.The sh species in the Silver State are as diverse asthe geography. Coldwater species include native cutthroat,redband (rainbow), and mountain whitesh. Non-nativespecies include brown, brook, and Mackinaw trout. Hybridspecies include bowcutts (rainbow/cutthroat) and tiger trout(brook/brown), so named from their tiger-like striping that isa direct result of the species cross.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. Although 20- to-30-pound sh are occasionally caught, the average sh weighscloser to two pounds. Wipers, a cross between a stripedbass and a white bass, can be found in Lahontan, RyePatch, Wildhorse and South Fork reservoirs. In northeasternNevada, Wildhorse Reservoir, traditionally a trout shery, isalso becoming known as a yellow perch shery, especiallyin winter. Largemouth bass and channel catsh are foundthroughout the state including Lakes Mead and Mohave,Lahontan, Rye Patch and South Fork Reservoirs.Want to sh closer to home? There are several beautifullakes 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, ParadisePond, Sparks Marina, and Marilyn’s Pond. Wilson Commonand Davis Creek Park Pond are popular sheries in WashoeValley and Baily Fishing Pond just opened in Carson City(See story page 34).If you are looking for some tips on shing the Silver State,pick up a How to Fish in Nevada book free at any NDOWofce (see page 4 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’swaters and include the types of sh that can be found.This publication is meant as a reference for any questionsyou might have regarding shing the Silver State. Statewideregulations and license information can be found near thefront of the magazine (pages 6-12), 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).
