Waterfowl seasons opening Saturday

Hunters planning to bag a few ducks or geese at the Key Pittman and Overton Wildlife Management Areas on opening day of their respective seasons will need to make reservations. At Key Pittman, reservations are needed only on opening day of the duck and goose seasons. At Overton, however, reservations are required for both the goose and the duck season openers and for the remainder of the waterfowl season.

This year, the duck and goose seasons both open Saturday at Key Pittman, while only goose opens at Overton. The Nevada Department of Wildlife will begin taking reservations for both management areas at 8 a.m. Monday at its Las Vegas and Henderson offices or at the appropriate management area.

The maximum capacity on a season opener at Key Pittman is 55 hunters at any time. Hunters must check in and out at the main entrance and park only in designated areas. Following the season opener at Key Pittman, hunters need only to obtain reservation cards at the Frenchy Lake or Nesbitt Lake check stations prior to hunting. This card must be completed and returned to the check station after hunters are done for the day.

Duck season at the Overton WMA opens Oct. 31. NDOW will begin taking reservations at 8 a.m. Oct. 26 at the agency’s Las Vegas and Henderson offices and at the Overton WMA. When making a reservation for Overton, an individual hunter may reserve one assigned hunt location for himself and three other individuals, and that reservation must be used before reserving another hunt day. Hunters with reservations for Overton must check in no later than 90 minutes before legal shooting time. Those who fail to do so will be considered a no-show and their hunt location will be given to someone on the standby list.


Bass fishing seminar set for Saturday

Lake Mead’s cagey bass can sometimes be a source of frustration for Nevada’s anglers, but those with a little know-how generally find success. The Nevada Department of Wildlife is hosting a seminar on fishing Lake Mead, and members of several local bass fishing clubs will be on hand to share their knowledge of the lake and techniques they use.

There is no cost for the seminar, which is scheduled for 2 p.m. Saturday at the Alan Bible (Lake Mead) Visitors Center located off of Highway 93 at Lakeshore Drive just east of Boulder City. For more information, contact Ivy Santee at 486-5127, ext. 3503.


Fly-fishing, tying classes offered

The Nevada Department of Wildlife is offering two introductory classes for those interested in learning about fly-fishing and tying their own flies.

The first is an introduction to fly-fishing course that will help students learn about fishing and cover casting skills. It will begin at 8 p.m. Oct. 24 in the Nevada Division of State Parks conference room at 4747 Vegas Drive. Equipment and materials will be provided.

For those interested in learning how to tie their own fishing flies, NDOW is offering a beginning fly-tying class at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 27 at 4747 Vegas Drive. Students will learn the art of tying fishing flies. All equipment and materials will be provided, and participants will get to keep the flies they make.

For more information and to register, contact Ivy Santee at 486-5127, ext. 3503. Registration for both classes starts Oct. 14.
