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.

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
