Ruby Lake NWR - Elko, NV (Elko County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

No recent information on the condition of Harrison Pass.  With the snow at higher elevations last weekend it probably isn’t be passable. Secret Pass is recommended.  Plenty of open water in the collection ditch and the ponds. Some ice in the mornings but with warmer temperatures forecast for next week that should go away.  Fishing has been fair to good for 13 to 18-inch fish depending upon the day and location on the ditch.  Chironomid patterns such as zebra midges, Yankee buzzers, chromies and ice cream cones should work. Other flies such as leech patterns, balanced leeches, crystal buggers, #14-16 hare’s ears, and #16-18 PT nymphs fished under an indicator are recommended.  Very small dry flies have also been effective on warmer afternoons.  Size 16 to 20 elk hair caddis, blue winged olives, ants and Griffith’s gnats should all be effective. Egg patterns have also caught a few fish. Spin anglers should be using small spinners in black or olive with contrasting yellow or red colors.
