Water temperatures continue to drop at Comins Lake

Comins Lake - Ely, NV (White Pine County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Water temperatures continue to drop at Comins Lake, with an average water temperature of 400F.  Water clarity has steadily improved this late summer and early fall. Recent surveys showed rainbow trout ranging 16-to-24-inches and upwards of five pounds.  Fall stocking was completed with 8,246 rainbow trout averaging 8.2 inches. Bait fishermen should have luck with PowerBait, night crawlers, spinners, and a wet fly behind a bubble.  Fly anglers should consider nymph patterns and streamers such as wooly buggers and leech patterns with some flash tied in. With cooler water temperatures, anglers should expect fishing for largemouth bass to slow down for the remainder of the season.

Anglers are catching northern pike ranging from 18 inches to 30+ inches. 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.
