Water Flows Conditions Recommended Flies / Techniques Comments
      A Little Note on Bag Limits:  In Nevada for trout (most put and take waters, not including urban fishery ponds; these normally have lower limits): the regulation is 5 trout in POSSESSIONThis is does not mean 5 fish per day.  If you have 3 fish in your freezer, well, you get to fish for 2 more fish and then you are done fishing, no Catch and Release afterwards.    Don't take the risk and get a ticket.  They can be substantial.  In California most (Put and Take) rainbow trout waters is 5 trout per day, 10 in possession.  Regs per water can vary.  Come into the shop and get the regulations or go online and look at the specific waters at:
