Very small dry flies have also been effective on warmer afternoon

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Not much has changed as far as fishing conditions as fishing has been fair to good for 13 to 18-inch fish depending upon the day and location on the ditch.  The wind is also playing a part in the fishing.  Best days seem to be when there are light to moderate winds to break the surface up but not so strong as to interfere with casting.  Chironomid patterns such as zebra midges, Yankee buzzers, chromies and ice cream cones should work. Other flies such as leech patterns, balanced leeches, crystal buggers, #14-16 hare’s ears, and #16-18 PT nymphs fished under an indicator are recommended. Stripping damselfly nymphs should also be effective. Very small dry flies have also been effective on warmer afternoons.  Size 16 to 20 elk hair caddis, blue winged olives, ants and Griffith’s gnats should all be effective.  Spin anglers should be using small spinners in black or olive with contrasting yellow or red colors. A few fish are being caught near the main boat ramp and in Unit 21.  It is still a bit cold for bass. Approximately 6,600 trout have been stocked at the main boat ramp and 6,100 trout in the collection ditch.
