Stocked With Rainbow & Bluegill

Comins Lake - Ely, NV (White Pine County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Work is being done to put in an improved boat ramp at Comins which is affecting access to the lake.  Do not expect to be able to launch a large boat for the foreseeable future as volunteers and contractors are cutting brush and moving dirt to prepare for the boat ramp. This is taking place where people have usually launched boats and that area is currently not accessible.  There is trenching and the installation of power along the entrance road and anglers should expect occasional road closures in this area.  Very little change here as far fishing conditions which has been good this spring with 16-to-20-inch Rainbow Trout being caught. Bass fishing has picked up and is good. Anglers will do well on nightcrawlers, a variety of spinners, wet flies behind a bubble, and even PowerBait.  Minnow imitations and large streamer patterns have been working for northern pike, many of which have been staged for spawning on the southeast shoreline.  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.  If the pike doesn’t have the transmitter tag, please humanely dispatch the fish.  Do not put it back in the lake.  Comins Lake has was stocke with approximately 4,900 rainbow trout last week as well as a truckload of blue gill salvaged from Jiggs Reservoir.
