Trout and bass fishing has picked up

Comins Lake - Ely, NV (White Pine County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Trout and bass fishing has picked up but continues to be slow compared to most years. Surface water temps are hitting the mid 60’s. Despite slower catch rates, anglers can still expect to catch 14-to-18-inch rainbow trout and the occasional brown or tiger trout.  Anglers are reporting largemouth bass in the 10-to-13 inch range hitting crankbaits and swimbaits.

Post-spawn northern pike are beginning to be more active in recent weeks. Anglers are encouraged to target northern pike while they are fishing.  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.
