Fishing in Nevada, A brief look

Despite the majority of desert land, Nevada has some excellent trout fishing in several large lakes and in a few streams. Largemouth bass, too, attract many anglers, due to ease of reaching such premier waters as Lake Mead, with its more than 50 miles of colorful indented shoreline. Lake Mead is considered an outstanding option for a fishing vacation. Lake Mead is largely 'boat game' casting plugs and other lures along the steep, rocky shores and under the colorful overhanging cliffs of innumerable islands. The bait fishing angler does well too, particularly in the winter months when the bass are deep, fishing mudsucker minnows or waterdogs.

Northern Nevada fishing can be found along the state's western boundary, in the towering Sierras, with their rushing snow waters, lies beautiful Lake Tahoe, with 10 miles of forested, attractive shoreline. Lake Tahoe is very deep, cold and clear. Deep trolling is the usual method of lake trout trout fishing. The beautiful Truckee River, a natural outlet of Tahoe, flows down through its wooded canyon where there is always good trout fishing for the skilled angler.
