Largemouth Bass Catch Rates are Good!

Comins Lake - Ely, NV (White Pine County)

by Aaron Meier

With water temperatures in the 70’s vegetation is thick in the south lake.  Boats and float tubes have better access to fishing than shore fishermen do.­­­  Rainbow trout are still being caught in the 14 to 18 inch range though they have moved deeper into the lake and it is taking more work to find them. Largemouth bass catch rates are good with 8 to 10 inch bass readily being caught.  Trout are hitting a variety of flies from nymphs to streamers as well as powerbait and nightcrawlers.  Largemouth bass are hitting top water rigs to senkos and plastic grubs.  Anglers are encouraged to fish morning and evening hours when it is cooler..
