Ruby Lake NWR Fishing Report
Ruby Lake NWR - Elko, NV (Elko County)
by Nevada Department of Wildlife
Very little change here as much of the south marsh and units are covered in ice. Even the collection ditch and units have some ice, though you can find open water where the springs are. Fishing continues to be fair to good at the collection ditch for 12 to 16 inch trout. Small spinners and minnow imitations were producing some fish for spin fishermen, but fly rodders were doing better. Blue winged Olives, ants, beetles, and Griffith’s gnats, are all good choices for dry flies. However, wet flies will probably outperform the dries right now. These include the usual small nymphs such as PT’s, hares ears, red or blue copper Johns and prince nymphs. Wooly and crystal buggers in black, purple or olive are also working. In the crystal clear water of the collection ditch, if you can see the fish, they can see you. Go low, slow and wear drab clothing. Harrison Pass is very dicey and 4WD only with several vehicles being stuck for a few hours over the past week. It would be much better and safer to go through Secret Pass.
