Topaz Lake is still good. Reports from Float Tubers at the inlet area had great reports of trout all over 2 pounds. The bass are starting to show up,'big uglies', buggers, dead drift cray fish. THE CARP are still in the shallows, not in the high numbers a few weeks ago, but can still be targeted in that area. (if you haven't done carp fishing, come in and ask.. it's a hoot!) Olive buggers, damsel nymphs, Carp flies, crayfish patterns and a very stout 8 weight rod. FYI the canal temps were at 78 degrees coming out of the lake. Not good for C & R.
If fishing the LAKE of Topaz, a CA (OR) an NV.. if you turn to do the outlet (Topaz Canal) you must have a NV license. As is, turning to the inlet, you would have to have a CA license. Be informed the Canal area is now marked NO Trespassing about 2 miles from head wall (It is private property).

Please still carry a thermometer if you are going to be doing any Catch and Release. Have you looked closely at the trees around the Valley? See those bits of yellow? Wondering each day if Fall is going to arrive a bit sooner this year. It would be great to see some cooler temps for a few weeks, and then after the throngs of tourists leave, the locals will have a Fall Fishing Festivus for the Rest of...... Read More
