Perch fishing derby at Wildhorse Reservoir

By Don Quilici

The Wildhorse Resort at Wildhorse Reservoir in Northern Elko County is sponsoring a two-day, ice-fishing derby for Perch on March 12 and 13.

The registration fee is $25 per person per day.

The three longest Perch each day will win $250 for 1st, $150 for 2nd and $100 for 3rd.

Your Perch must be entered by no later than 5 p.m., each day of the contest.

In addition, there will be a number of raffle prizes.

The Wildhorse Reservoir fishing season is open year round, any hour of the day or night.

The limits are five trout and 15 warmwater game fish, of which not more than five may be black bass (the minimum size for black bass is 11 inches).

Be advised that from March 1 through June 30, only "catch and release" fishing is allowed for the black bass.

For information, call Dennis Dunn at the Wildhorse Resort at (775) 758-6472.
