Comins Lake Fishing Report

Comins Lake - Ely, NV (White Pine County)

Poor snowpack and a rainless summer resulted in the lake level dropping approximately three feet this year.  Last week’s cold snap resulted in several inches of ice that subsequently melted leaving most of the lake accessible to boat and shoreline fishing.  There is a narrow strip of ice in the “narrows” and it is uncertain if boats can break through it at this time.  Water temperatures were at measured at 36 degrees earlier this week.  Trout are in good numbers with 16+ inch Rainbow Trout being caught regularly, with 20+ inch Rainbow Trout still found in creels.   A total of 33,217 Rainbow Trout and 3,104 Brown Trout were stocked this year at Comins Lake.  Anglers will do well on nightcrawlers, mealworms, a variety of jigs, wet flies, and powerbait.  Anglers please note that NDOW has placed radio tags in several Northern Pike.  These pike will have an orange floy tag near their dorsal fin and a small antenna coming from their stomach. Please return these fish to the water for research purposes.
