Comins Lake - Ely, NV (White Pine County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

As of January 12th, most areas that were sampled had 12 inches of solid ice. There are reports of a few small areas with weaker ice present. No ice is guaranteed to be 100% safe, please exercise caution.  Fishing has been good on both the north and south lakes. Anglers can expect to catch 14-to-18-inch Rainbow Trout and the occasional Brown Trout or Tiger Trout. Nightcrawlers and plastic jigs are consistently producing trout. Northern Pike activity has increase recently but they have been hard to target.  Northern Pike have been caught recently by jigging Rat-L, flashy spoons, and even Nightcrawlers. 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.  Ice fishing holes must not exceed 10 inches in diameter (NAC 503.583).
