With the Water Temperature at 46 Prime Crappie fishing is in full swing. Crappies should be migrating to their spawning areas now. They?ll either be up in the final spawning area now or at tributary entrances. Concentrate around 15 feet of water. Fish Primary points at the mouth of the creek arms. Fish Targets at this point instead of focusing on bait fish.

Wild Horse Reservoir Trout Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- My husband and I lived in Fernley, Nev. and we used to load of our fifth wheel and head for Wild horse Reservoir, and would stay five days and fish. What a wonderful time we had. Our neighbors in Fernley loved for us to go as we always brought home some fish and shared it with them. Those were wonderful days, I live in Montana now, and my husband passed away about 6 years ago. If I could find someone to go with me I would go down for a few days a d fish. The trout were absolutely wonderful. Love that place

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

The full moon has just past. The gravitational pull is starting to decrease with the moon and sun being on opposite sides of the planet. Watch the peak fishing times and make sure you are on the water during that part of the day to take full advantage of today's solar/lunar peaks. It's always fun trying something new at the peak times to change things up a bit and test out the Lunar Theory each time you hit the water in close to full and full moon situations. Good luck you there.
