If you're up north, Stillwater is probably the best all around area. Lots of opportunity there, though it takes some time to familiarize yourself with it. Greenhead/Carson Lake can be really good too but I haven't hunted there for some time and was never really familiar with it. There are spots along the Truckee River that can be productive too. That's a little harder to get in to though. Washoe Lake used to be really good but, again, I haven't hunted there for several years.

Where are you at??
In the North, you have Mason Valley Refuge as well. Close to Yerington. Not much water now. limited hunting with water levels over opener. Pumping water now. Should be better in a few weeks.
One thing to add on Stillwater...Go get familiar with it in the daylight. Lots of remote country out there. Easy to get lost if you do not know where you are going.
And Washoe? Too little water with 7 day a week hunting = few birds
Good luck

I'm going to give washoe a try tonight. As for stillwater be careful that mud out there is harsh! Hunted there on Saturday came back Sunday cleaned the birds then went to clean the gun and it was already rusted! Steel wooled it down to metal on some parts! Dog got a couple sores too

Stillwater is a great place to hunt but the best bet is to get a map and paddle around out there or find someone to show you.
That's a bummer about your shotgun Mallard how did it end up in the mud....
I didn't see anyone mention Greenhead it's not free but also good hunting. I would wait on Washoe no water and no birds

Mallard,
Go with Cabelas or Drake brand waders. Cabelas carries a lifetime warranty on their apparel and footwear and Drake has good products as well. A lot of guys also like gamehide.

And def wait it out on Washoe. Sorry about the gun.
