Washoe Lake has benefitted from the historic winter of 2016-2017 and has reached levels not seen in over a decade. Fishing will be very difficult due to the lake being dry for several years. The lake is scheduled to receive channel catfish in 2017 and the process to rebuild the fishery has begun. Lucky anglers may have success on white bass or channel catfish. Focusing efforts around Little Washoe Lake may provide the best opportunity for a successful day.
