The lake level has been fluctuating

Topaz Lake - Gardnerville, NV

by Doug Busey

The lake level has been fluctuating, it has gone down a couple feet in the last week. I spoke with a park ranger that told me he has been trying to adjust the boat ramps to keep up with the fluctuation. For larger boats, I recommend using the outside ramps. I fished last weekend for a few hours. Trolled most of the lake to get only a couple hits and one nice fish that got a few feet from the boat and spit the hook. The east side day use camp area across from the ramp is mainly under water still. I did run into a couple anglers that caught a nice 3 lb rainbow from the north shore. I also talked with a few bass anglers that have been doing fair for small mouths.

Good luck on your next fishing adventure. If you have a question. a report in our local fishing area or have a photo of your catch, send it to [email protected]. Hope to see you on the waters. Good fishin' and tight lines.
