Nevada

From the bright lights of Las Vegas to the Dark Skies of the Massacre Rim Wilderness, Nevada is a state marked by both its natural and manmade beauty. In the Battle Born State, iconic areas include Lake Tahoe, Great Basin National Park, and Red Rock Canyon. Primarily defined by the Great Basin and the Mojave Desert, Nevada is home to one of the nation’s largest sagebrush areas and iconic species such as bighorn sheep, mule deer, and sage grouse call it home. For anglers, Pyramid Lake presents the opportunity to fish for gargantuan Lahontan cutthroat trout, while the Trucker River and Knot Creek are well-known as fly fishing destinations. From the summit of Boundary Peak to the lakebed of the Black Rock Desert, Nevada is a study in contrasts that has something for all sportsmen and women.
