AREA CREEKS AND LAKES

 

Indian Creek Reservor (updated 6/3/24)

The lake has lots of stocked fish in it and we've had some third party reports that fishing has been pretty good for the tubers.  We suggest however that you call the Angler's Edge Fly Shop (775)781-7112 for an up to the minute report before you go.  

 

Wolf Creek (updated 7/7/23)

Not accessible due to road construction.  Gate is still closed.

The creek received a plant this past week but is blown out due to runoff.

Henan Lake (updated 9/5/23) Closed
