Lake is being drained and anglers should avoid this lake

Cave Lake - Ely, NV (White Pine County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

For safety reasons and to expedite the rebuilding of the dam, the lake is being drained and anglers should avoid this lake.  Water being drained will be diverted to Comins Lake and if conditions allow, NDOW will be performing a fish salvage moving the fish from Cave and taking them to Comins Lake.  Shorelines will be very soft and dangerous due to the complete saturation of the soil as the lake is drained.  By draining the lake it should shave a couple of years off the re-building of the dam and cut costs tremendously.  It will also make the project much safer for those performing the work.
