Fishing Report

The Nevada Department of Wildlife stocked rainbow trout at Lorenzi, Floyd Lamb, Sunset, and Hafen Parks last week. Anglers have caught a few catfish on night crawlers and chicken livers before sunset. Gold spinners, Kastmasters, and worms are working best for enticing trout.

Pertinent Information

The pond is approximately 3 acres, is spring fed, and covered heavily with cattails along the shoreline. There are a few openings to fish from shore or you can use a float tube or kayak to gain access to open water. Small spinners, Power Bait, salmon eggs, and flies are effective for rainbow trout. It is stocked with rainbow trout, but the pond also contains resident largemouth bass and catfish from previous stockings sometime after its construction in 1977. Use the typical lures such as plastic worms or spinner baits for bass and stink baits such as chicken liver for catfish. There is no campground or amenities, but campers disperse throughout the area.
