The new boat ramp should be useable now

Comins Lake - Ely, NV (White Pine County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

The new boat ramp should be useable now thanks to the hard work of volunteers from the Ely area and the contractor.  Surface water temperatures are in the mid 40’s.  Fishing has been slow for bass but good for 14 to 17-inch trout.   Anglers will catch trout on nightcrawlers, spinners, nymphs and wooly buggers. Chironomid patterns under an indicator are effective here this time of year.  Bass fishing is slow using crankbaits and spinnerbaits fished slowly for the best chance at a bass.  Minnow imitations and large streamer patterns should work for northern pike.  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.  Anglers may catch an occasional Bluegill but NDOW is asking that those fish not be harvested since they are the founder population of what could be a fun pan fishery.  Comins Lake was stocked with approximately 3,000 fish last week.
