Fish NV is an application to help you find the ideal location for your next fishing excursion. All the information within the application was compiled by those who know it best - your fellow Nevada anglers. Read below for more information about the data used within the app.
Fishable waters are classified by NDOW Fisheries biologists for each of their respective areas of management authority. Not every stream, creek, reservoir, or lake is considered a fishable water. Some don't contain sport fish populations. Others may not support fish year around. Occasionally there may be discrepancies between what NDOW consideres a fishable water and what might look like a fishable water on a map. For further clarification, please call your local NDOW office.
Potential trophy fish can be classified into a few separate categories (listed below).
The data for this application comes from two primary sources maintained by the Nevada Department of Wildife: the Trophy Fish Database, and the Fishable Waters Database.
The Fishable Waters Database is developed by NDOW biologists and used to generate the Nevada Fishing Guide every year. It houses a catalog of every fishable water in Nevada as well as which species can be caught in each respective water. The Nevada Fishing Guide is available at local license vendors, NDOW offices, or for download from NDOW's website.
The Trophy Fish Database contains user submitted fish data of trophy fish caught throughout the state. Nevada anglers can submit trophy fish applications to NDOW for inclusion in an annual Trophy Fish Book generated by the Nevada Department of Wildlife. This book is not limited to just trophy fish. It also contains lists of water records for all fishable waters in Nevada and is updated annually.
