I've heard the water comes from Hobart and Tahoe. Don't know for sure though.

The east ponds are full but the west ponds are just now starting to fill. The west pump house can pump for 5 days then it recharges for 2 days.... so the east ponds are sketchy for the amount of water come opener on Sat. but area days or a week later it'll be good. Just remember to spread out and be safe and ask to hunt on a pond if someone is already set up. Don't barge!!

Just got back from roaming around down there......I think it will be more exciting to watch everyone fight over the only 1 pond on the south that has any measureable water than it will be to shoot ducks! It is very dismal!!! Spent the morning around the entire lake and based on what I saw, I'm gonna spend my sat morning shooting quail!!! Need some RAIN!!

Plato would you be interested in taking me out on a morning hunt sometime at washoe? It seems like you know the area and logistics

last year the afternoon hunts were more productive than the morning hunts.
