“Can You Really Fly Fish in Central Nevada? Nothing says “Road Trip” like a day fly fishing in Central Nevada”

Nevada has big water. Nevada’s prominent lakes are Lake Tahoe to the north and Lake Mead to the South. Smack dab between these two gems is Central Nevada.

There is zero big water in Central Nevada. Instead you’ll find a diverse smattering of smaller locations in which to pursue trout, bass and other species. The Central Nevada fishery includes ponds, ditches, reservoirs, creeks, alpine lakes and a few small rivers.

For those willing to seek-out Central Nevada’s fishable waters, plan on long travel times to fish this high desert frontier region of the American West. Rewards include wide open spaces and fly fishing at its finest!

NDOW (Nevada Dept. Of Wildlife) is a great resource on fishing Central Nevada.
