Hey all,

I was thinking of going to Topaz saturday. I've never been there before. Where is a good spot to fish from the bank? Is a CA license good on the Nevada side of the lake? Is the second rod stamp valid there?
Thanks in advance.

The Ca license only lets you fish the calif part of the lake.


Just kidding.......A Nv or Ca will let you fish all of the lake.

Either state 2 rod stamp will be ok also.......... ;)

you can also use bait and hooks with barbs.

The North end and the east side in the park are good spots this time of year. use crawlers and marshmallows. Later in the year the West side and the southwest end will be good.

So what part of the lake is ice free?

Does the wind blow the ice into shore to cut off fishing?

Any info would be nice...........(Current)

Fished the north shore. When we got there at 10:30 there was some ice on the shore and a large patch of ice around 100 yards off shore. By 1:30 it had moved in. There was a large patch of ice in the middle of the lake and it was growing as I watched it at 3:00 from the Lodge. The area in front of the State park and on the east shore seemed free of ice and there were a couple of boats out trolling. I suspect that the California side is free of both ice and trout. It's gonna be cold again tonight and the water temp at Topaz is most likely below 35 degreesso tomorrow could be a diferent story.

As always I remain optimistic. Where we fished seemed much better then closer to the state park.

I stopped at the bug station turn-out on Saturday and the two trucks that were there were extremely bored. 8-) That spot usually gets good when it warms up.
