Hunting and fishing opportunities might be Northern Nevada’s best kept secret.

Wildlife abounds around the foothills of the Eastern Sierra, as well as the surrounding lakes and streams. Outdoorsmen come from all around the world to fish for the elusive Cutthroat trout, or hunt for a chukar. Traditionally mild weather makes it a year-round affair.

In the heart of Carson City, the Carson River contains an abundance of rainbow trout, carp, bass and whitefish. Clear Creek, which flows through southern Carson City from the Lake Tahoe Basin, offers small stream fishing. The Truckee River flows to the north, and the capital is in close proximity to Pyramid, Topaz, and Washoe lakes, as well as the locally famous Hobart Reservoir.
