Fair to Good Depending Upon the Time of Day.

Cave Lake - Ely, NV (White Pine County)

by Aaron Meier

Very little change here with surface water temperatures above 70 degrees, fishing at Cave Lake is fair to good depending upon the time of day.  Anglers need to fish deeper in the water column as the trout have gone deep to escape the heat or fish right at sunup when surface water temperatures are at their lowest.  The usual PowerBait or worms as well as small spinners, panther Martins or rooster tails should all work.  Fly fishermen have been doing well with dry flies with elk hair caddis, red ants, small stimulators and Adams in the early mornings and evenings.  Nymphs to try include prince, pheasant tails, hares ears, damsel and midge larva when fishing deeper water.  Anglers will have the best luck early in the morning or late in the evening.
