Comins Lake Fishing Report

Comins Lake - Ely, NV (White Pine County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

With warmer air temps last week and forecasted again next week, ice growth at Comins has been slow and some slush has accumulated on top of the ice. At last report, most areas that were sampled had 5 to 6 inches of solid ice, with pockets of weaker ice present. No ice is guaranteed to be 100% safe, always exercise caution. Fishing has been fair on both the north and south lakes. Anglers can expect to catch 14-to-18-inch Rainbow Trout and the occasional Brown Trout and Tiger Trout.  Nightcrawlers, PowerBait, and ice jigs tipped with bait seem to be producing good catch rates. Ice fishing holes must not exceed 10 inches in diameter (NAC 503.583). 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 (~ 7 inches long) coming from their stomach.  Please return these fish to the water for research purposes.
