Trout Diving Deeper, Bass Bite Has Been Good

Comins Lake - Ely, NV (White Pine County)

Website

Comins Lake has water temperatures in the 70’s which is driving the trout deeper and helping the bass bite.  Anglers need to fish full sink lines and get to the lower depths. Trout fishing is best first thing in the morning.  Fly fisherman should use wooly buggers, leech patterns, and nymphs patterns (midges, beaded pheasant tails…etc.) fished under an indicator.  Bass fishing is good and anglers are reporting decent sized bass using soft plastics, crankbaits and poppers on quiet evenings and mornings.  If you catch a pike, please check to see if it has a radio transmitter tag near the tail.  If it does, please return the fish to the water so that NDOW biologists can track its movements.  If it doesn’t have the transmitter tag, please humanely dispatch the fish.  Don’t put it back in the lake.
