It may be a high desert state, but Nevada is still home to hundreds upon hundreds of lakes, ponds, reservoirs, streams, and rivers. Altogether, the Silver State boasts nearly 400,000 surface acres of water. And that means impressive fishing, no matter what end of the state you happen to be exploring.
Sure, Nevada is part of the Great Basin, but there is some spectacular fishing out there I'm desperate for. And to have fishing 101 with fishing legend Denis Isbister at Pyramid? Woah. Take that, Nevada bucket list.
