13 to 18 Inch Trout Being Caught

Ruby Lake NWR - Elko, NV (Elko County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Very little change here as the collection ditch is ice free with the warmer temperatures. Fishing continues to be good at the collection ditch for 13 to 18 inch trout with the occasional large trout being taken.  Small brightly colored spinners were doing well.  Wet flies have been performing better than the dries right now.  These include the usual small nymphs such as PT’s, hares ears, olive soft hackles, BWO emergers, red or blue copper Johns and prince nymphs as well as egg patterns in orange or pink.  Wooly and crystal buggers in black, purple or olive are also working.  In the crystal clear water of the collection ditch, if you can see the fish, they can see you.  Go low, slow and wear drab clothing. Most of the dredging is completed, though there are a few wide spots that need to be done.  Dredging the ditch is almost complete except for a small portion near Brown Dike.  Fish upstream of the dredging for best results.  Obviously Harrison Pass is closed so you need to go through Secret Pass to get there.
