- Grab your rod and reel and head out to this recreational area conveniently located between Reno and Carson City. Fishermen of all ages delight in catching the stocked channel catfish and wipers, a cross between white bass and striped bass. This lake suffered a bit during the drought years of early 1990s, but it has been making a comeback and the fishing gets better every year. Campsites and a boat launch area are available, so you can easily turn your adventure into a day-long or weekend-long excursion. Admission to the lake is free, but if you want to fish, you must have a current Nevada Fishing License.
