27 Acre property with road frontage near Topaz lake is a reservoir located on the California-Nevada border, about 75 miles (121 km) south of Reno. The census-designated place of Topaz Lake, Nevada, is located along its northwest shore.
The modern reservoir was formed by diverting waters from the West Walker River into a nearby basin that had previously contained a smaller, natural lake. That lake had historical significance since it lay on the route taken by American explorer Jedediah Smith in late spring of 1827 when leaving California at the end of his first journey, the first crossing ever of the Sierra Nevada by a non-native. Smith came southeast through Monitor Pass, then east past Topaz Lake into Nevada.
The initial dam construction took place in 1922, resulting in a reservoir with a capacity of 45,000 acre feet (56,000,000 m3). In 1937, a new levee raised the capacity to its current 126,000 acre⋅ft (155,000,000 m3). Topaz Lake is a relatively large reservoir, with a maximum pool of 126,000 acre⋅ft (155,000,000 m3), with 2,410 acres (9.8 km2) surface, a length of 3.5 miles (5.6 km), a width of 1.5 mi (2.4 km), and a maximum depth of 92 ft (28 m). The levee and reservoir have been owned and operated by the Walker River Irrigation District since its construction.
Topaz Lake is popular for boaters, water-skiers, campers, and fishermen. Fishing season runs from January 1 to September 30, and the lake is stocked with trout by the Nevada Department of Wildlife and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife. The lake is easily reachable by U.S. Route 395. On the northwest shore of the lake is the Topaz Lodge and a residential area. There is also a volunteer fire station in the area.
U.S. Route 395 passes by the west side of the lake at the California-Nevada state line. The southeastern terminus of California State Route 89 is 3 miles (4.8 km) south of the state line. The western terminus of Nevada State Route 208 is 2 mi (3.2 km) north of the state line.

Property is 9 Minutes drive to West Walker River
Designated a “Wild and Scenic River,” the West Walker River has a reputation for its trophy-size trout – brown, rainbow, and Lahonton. It’s also a favorite river to kayak especially through its winding bends and rocky troughs.
The drive along the Walker River on US 395 is breathtaking and one of the prettiest river settings in the west. During the spring run-off, the river ignites and heaves into a heart-thumping white water kayaker’s dream.
The West Walker River meanders along the base of the eastern Sierra Nevada mountain range starting at Pickles Meadow through the town of Walker and flows into Topaz Lake to the north.
Fishing, kayaking, and camping.
Access for fishing is available at various points along the entire Walker River, off of US 395 from the last Saturday in April through November 15th, every year.
Whitewater kayaking is for advanced kayakers and is best during the spring run-off in May and June, depending on snow pack in the eastern Sierra Nevada.
