Nevada Fly Fishing

Orvis

“Although Nevada is widely known as a dry state, it has over 200 ponds, lakes and reservoirs which provide nearly 400,000 surface acres of sport-fishing opportunity. Additionally, both Nevada and Arizona share Lake Mead, North America’s largest reservoir which lies along the Colorado River. Add to this total, more than 500 streams and rivers that span nearly 3,000 fishable miles, and the state offers a wide variety of angling possibilities.” – Nevada Department of Wildlife
