Very Little Change Here This Week

Ruby Lake NWR - Elko, NV (Elko County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Very little change here.  Water level in the collection ditch is still up which is good news for anglers.  There is still some ice north of Bressman cabin and the rest of the collection ditch is turbid. Anglers report catching fish averaging 12 to 16 inches at the collection ditch using egg patterns, balanced leeches, crystal buggers, #14-16 hare’s ears, and #16-18 PT nymphs.  Other flies working include the usual small nymphs, olive soft hackles, red or blue copper Johns, and prince nymphs. On warmer afternoons if you see insects hatching, switch to blue winge olive emergers or dries. Small brightly colored spinners were doing well for spin fishermen.  Harrison Pass is still closed due to recent precipitation.
