Fishing Report

The Nevada Department of Wildlife stocked rainbow trout at Lorenzi, Floyd Lamb, Sunset, and Hafen Parks last week. Anglers have caught a few catfish on night crawlers and chicken livers before sunset. Gold spinners, Kastmasters, and worms are working best for enticing trout.

Pertinent Information

Mesquite Urban Pond is approximately 2 surface acres with a maximum depth of 12 feet. Water quality is generally good year-round and the level is usually maintained near capacity. Seasonally, moderate green algae blooms can occur, but are usually of short duration. Game fish include rainbow trout and channel catfish, which are stocked seasonally depending on water temperature. Small spinners, still baits such as Power Bait and salmon eggs, and flies can all be effective for rainbow trout. No developed camping is available at the park, but commercial RV facilities are available at several locations in the Mesquite area.
