Nevada may be a desert, but it’s also home to the impressive waters of Lake Mead and a reasonable amount of Lake Tahoe, in addition to more than 200 lakes reservoirs and 600 streams. You might not think a desert is a good place for fishing, but Nevada will happily prove you wrong.

Mountain whitefish, redband and bull trout, Yellowstone cutthroat, and striped and black bass are just a small selection of the fish varieties you’re likely to find in Nevada. Fishing costs are roughly in line with the cost in other states, so you’ll be able to enjoy the same pleasurable day on the lake.

Nevada also offers a free fishing day once per year, always the second Saturday in June.

Junior licenses are required for fishers ages 12-15, and anglers are required to have regular fishing licenses from age 16 on. Seniors who have resided in Nevada for at least 5 continuous years before the purchase of the license are eligible for a discounted rate on their fishing license. 

Nevada also imposes a lower limit on non-resident youth who are not required to purchase a fishing license. They are only able to take half the daily bag limit on any fish species without purchasing a license.
