The water level is low. I would suggest fishing the canyon area between Woodfords and Sorensons resort.  There are a lot of hidden places not many anglers venture to, and I think the fish know that.  Salmon eggs have been most productive.

Good luck on your next fishing adventure. If you have a question or a report in our local fishing area, call the Naw line at 775-267-9722. If you have a photo of your catch, send it to Hope to see you on the waters. Good fishin' and tight lines.
