Comins Lake is 75 percent covered in ice

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Comins Lake is ~75% covered with ice. Ice conditions should be considered unsafe, and anglers are advised not to access iced up areas of the lake. Anglers will be able to fish off the dam, northern and western shorelines of the north lake area.  The south lake float tube launch is opening up and the southern 1/3 of Comins Lake is open to fishing.  Anglers can expect to catch 14-to-18-inch Rainbow Trout and the occasional Brown Trout and possibly a Tiger Trout.  The spawn is just getting started for Northern Pike and anglers are encouraged to target Northern Pike while they are fishing.  With the extended forecast calling for a warm up, the remaining ice is expected to come off quickly. 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.
