The lake now has a warning to keep all pets out of the water due to the algae bloom. Anglers have been fishing the lake, but have been advised to clean your fish in clean tap water at home before consuming. I would not advise float tubers to venture out due the algae bloom. It is not as toxic to humans at this point, but why chance it. As soon as well get a good frost or freeze, the lake turns over and the lake cleans itself.


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 nevada@fishreports.com. Hope to see you on the waters. Good fishin' and tight lines.
