Topaz Lake (reservoir)

Topaz Lake South of Reno. Take highway 395 to the Nevada California boarder. Located on the Eastern Sierras Mono County, and Douglas County.

January 1 is also the time when the Topaz Lodge and Casino kicks off its annual Trout Derby. The Derby usually lasts until about mid-April and during that time you can catch a trout worth big bucks.
This year trout from 1½ pounds on up were purchased from the O’banion’s Aspen Lake Ranch in Wellington, Nevada. Fish were purchased by Topaz Lodge. Cabela’s also so put some trout in, along with the Aspen Lakes Ranch.
New rules apply this year but a lucky angler could still catch a trout worth $1,000.
