Mitch Pond Fishing Report

Mitch Pond - Gardnerville, NV (Douglas County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

The hatchery trucks are out working hard which means that many of our community ponds in the western region have received one round of trout this season. As weather and water conditions allow for it, they’ll continue to get fish supplemented as needed.

Powerbait off the bottom is typically the best go-to fishing method at the western community ponds. When vegetation covering the bottom is an issue, try using salmon eggs on light lines under bobbers. Spin fishing can be excellent with small spinners in most of our larger ponds and lakes. The general rule of light-colored lures on bright days and dark-colored lures on dark days will help keep your lures visible. Fly fishing can be incredibly fun in the smaller community ponds. Dry fly fishing with small terrestrials insects can often entice fish to the surface all day.
