Fly Fishermen Have Been Doing Well with Dry Flies

Cave Lake - Ely, NV (White Pine County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Very little change here with surface water temperatures cooling down, fishing at Cave Lake is good.  Trout have moved up in the water column with the cooler water.  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, ants, small stimulators and Adams and these should still work on the warm afternoons.  Nymphs to try include prince, pheasant tails, hares ears, damsel and midge larva when fishing deeper water.  Cave Lake has been stocked with approximately 10,000 trout over the past few weeks.
