Fishing has significantly improved compared to last year

Comins Lake - Ely, NV (White Pine County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Comins Lake is near capacity with water temperatures sitting in the low to mid 50s.  Fishing has significantly improved compared to last year. Rainbow trout catches are ranging from 16 to 21 inches and between 1.5 and 4 pounds. Nightcrawlers are producing trout for anglers, as well as spinner lures, wooly buggers, scud patterns, and midge patterns.

Black bass activity is starting to pick up with increased water temperatures.  There is a limited bluegill fishery, and anglers are encouraged to release bluegill catches so that their population can become better established.

Pike are post-spawn right now and should be moving into deeper water. They will begin actively feeding now that spawning is not at the forefront of their mind.  Please note that NDOW has placed radio tags in several Northern Pike. Any pike over 24 inches in length that have transmitters can be removed from the lake. 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.
