Problem with Reno is that there has been some massive and strong year classes of perch that have kept the eyes occupied...While things are improving now, it's still not what you would call a "Hot Bite."

I fished Reno the past 4 openers and it is hit or miss, but mainly miss due to the previous responder's point about the perch. Then again, there should be some biggin's in there to catch as well.

I'd agree that if it's walleyes you're after it will be hit and miss. But if it's a meal you're after the perch are good table fair. There are some good sized perch out there now after a few years of monster hatches. Just need to thin out the herd.

      Went out yesterday in between honey dos.  First sunny day in several days.  Hooked up on a good sized bunch of brown fish in 5 FOW.  They were enjoying warmer water, 55F, on a chunk rock spot. Caught the females first with the largest around 4 lbs then a few smaller males came to the boat.  All caught on plastics.  Went back out late after the last chore to catch an eye for supper.  No luck on eyes but the pike enjoyed a few minnows.

      Good luck out there.  I'll try to make some time to stop over.

      The reason I asked @eyeguy 54 is during the day that ramp parking lot at Cathedral is always full of student parking. Can't understand how they get away with it. During the week prior to Governor's Opener we never had any issues during the weekdays, but now on school days, we just launch at Wilson Park. BTW, did you find any walleye on the down current sides of the sandbars in that stretch?

      We use to go there until a few years ago. Now we are right next store. I couldn't figured out how to get into my old account so I had to make a new one. My old screen name was deershooter.
