Expect fair bass fishing to begin with until the water gets a bit warmer

Ruby Lake NWR - Elko, NV (Elko County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Starting Wednesday, June 15, anglers may put boats with electric motors only on the south lake. Expect fair bass fishing to begin with until the water gets a bit warmer. For bass most anglers use three to five inch soft plastic grubs fished on a weedless hook. Dark colors with sparkle seem to work best. Popular colors include motor oil, quacamole, root beer, black, dark blue and dark green. For trout fish the spring heads in deeper water. Spin anglers should be using small spinners in black or olive with contrasting yellow or red colors. Fly fishermen should be using small leech, wooly bugger and nymph patterns.
