Wildhorse Reservoir

Rating - Good   

Wednesday, Sep 21 2022
Surface water temperatures dipped back into the high 40s with the colder weather and precipitation. Fishing continues to be good with most anglers having good luck in both Penrod and Hendricks Arms. Fishing in the coves as well as in the Hendricks and Penrod Arms from shore has been good for trout. Bass fishing is still very slow with the cold water temperatures. Perch fishing is also slow. The same fly patterns continue to workh as fly fishermen have been having good luck with wine colored leech patterns as well as wine or red chironomid. Olive, wine and black/blood leeches and buggers have also produced fish. For bait anglers try fishing an inflated worm a few feet off the bottom using a slip sinker in water that is four to 10 feet deep. Dont fish it too far from the bank, 20 to 30 feet at most. Another option would be to roll some PowerBait to make a bell shape and fish it in a similar fashion to the inflated worm using a slip sinker and it will float up a couple of feet above the bottom. Make sure to dip the PowerBait in the water for a few seconds after it is on the hook to gel it up so it doesnt come off the hook when casting. Wildhorse was stocked with 10,000 trout in early April and 500 wipers this week. No black bass may be kept until July 1. Please return all black bass to the lake as soon as they are caught.
