Ruby Lake Fishing Report

Ruby Lake NWR - Elko, NV (Elko County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Harrison Pass is snowed in and should be considered closed for the winter so anglers will need to travel the long way through Secret Pass. Most anglers are catching 12 to 14 inch tiger trout using a variety of flies, spinners and lures with an occasional 16-20 inch fish being taken in the collection ditch. Water through the ditch has increased flows especially along Brown Dike which seemed to turn the bite off with the big change. Fishing should be picking up as the fish get used to it. The collection ditch is artificial lures only. Fishing in the collection ditch will only get better as we get closer to winter.
