Fishing Has Been Fair to Good

Cave Lake - Ely, NV (White Pine County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Cave Lake is ice free and fishing for nine to 12 inch fish has been fair to good.  Surface water temperatures are in the high 40’s but should cross into the 50’s soon if they haven’t already done so by the time you are reading this.  The lake was stocked with approximately 3400 trout averaging around 11 inches.  Most anglers are having luck with small worms, though PowerBait is also catching fish.  Fly rodders should be using small olive or black bead head crystal buggers, small olive wooly worms, hares ears and prince nymphs.  On warmer afternoons if a hatch is seen, small Adams, black ants, Griffith’s gnats, and red or yellow humpies should all work. Expect the lake to be stocked sometime in the next few weeks.
