    Coyote Island has water all the way around it to show there is a lot of water in the lake, and getting better.
    Was out there May 16th but it was a windy day and my electric trolling motor hand control battery died!

    No walleye or wipers this trip but I did keep one large 14" Crappie for the pan, to test my cooking ability.

    Still a long ways from prime time...........
    Boat ramps good to go and shore fishing worked a few weeks ago on my scouting trip for this season.
    Lots of small 6-8" white bass to have fun with, casting spoons.

    The new Clark road is another good way to get to this lake from Reno. Watch your speed.
    Later.
    It's about 20 minutes from my front door. I had an opportunity to buy 20 acres in Silver Springs that was supposed to be Lake front property. I looked at it but it wasn't lake front. We'll, it is now.. LOL.

    Re: Nevada waters

    While Nevada does have some good fishing in a lot of areas...........

    there are also a lot of waters that the State did not take care of, where water was more important for crops.
    Walker, Willow and Ryepatch, to name a few where all the fish were killed from poor management.

    It takes a long time for a lake to come back.......... this was one of our best lakes that died.

    then a $8 fee for a person to get a fishing permit.

    $43 a day, seems a little stiff to me for a warm water species.
    That will pay for a seasons fishing at Lahontan.

    However one must remember the White Crappie record came from this lake...........
    Ya, I wait till they show in the river, those fees killed that area for me. Everybody is so greedy, God put fish here to CONSUME not make a profit from!

    Hey, if you want to pay tribal fees, the crappie are on fire at weber! Fish the dam with jigs or the points with minnow/bobber. No mercury in that system.
