About: -

Located seven miles south of Ely along U.S. 93, Comins Lake is known for producing chunky rainbow trout. It is fed by both Steptoe and Cave Creeks from the east and Willow Creek from the south. At capacity, the lakecovers 410 surface acres with a maximum depth of 15 feet. Average depth is 6 to 8 feet.

Rainbow trout, brown trout, largemouth bass and northern pike currently inhabit the reservoir. Due to the tremendous amount of feed, these fish grow very rapidly and reach very healthy sizes. Creel census for 2003 showed a catch rate of 0.47 fish per hour and 1.93 fish per angler with an average catch size of 13.9 inches for the rainbow and 20.9 inches for the brown trout. In addition to the fish checked, accounts of fish over 5 pounds were common, with some fish over 8 pounds reportedly captured. Largemouth bass have been stocked by NDOW and northern pike have been illegally introduced into the reservoir.

Although fishing is usually best in the spring and fall, maintained high water levels throughout the year should improve the summer fishery. Bait fishermen should fish off the bottom with Power Bait, salmon eggs, or night crawlers with a minimal amount of weight. Spinners and spoons are popular with the casters, but a fly and a bubble produces excellent results. Fly fishermen should use nymph and damsel patterns in the spring and dark wooly buggers and leeches the rest of the year. Remember to use a heavy leader. For those willing to brave the elements, weighted jigs (green or yellow) seem to work best for ice fishing.

Facilities: A primitive boat launch is available. There are restrooms on-site. Overnight camping and fires are not allowed.,P.

Misc Info: - Regulations - Fishing is allowed year around. Limit is 5 trout and 5 black bass daily and in possession. There is no limit on northern pike (unlimited possession). Boats must be operated at a speed which leaves a flat wake and in no case exceeds 5 nautical miles per hour from sunset to 11 a.m. From 11 a.m. to sunset the reduced speed restriction is lifted and water skiing is allowed.
