Ely Area Trout Fishing

2 posts in this topic

Thank you to everyone that gave us tips for Tofte Lake!! We are very excited to go back and try it with a better set up. We are going to head up there again tomorrow. Are there any other good Trout lakes in that area?? We would like to try a couple of different ones while we are up there. Thanks again for the tips!

Miners Lake right in Ely is a mine pit full of rainbows and brookies. Size runs from 12 inches up to 25 inches or so.

Easiest way to fish them from shore is with a slip bobber set about 15-20 feet down and half a nightcrawler. You can cast out from next to the public landing or use the fishing pier near the public landing. Either way, the pit drops right off so you're fishing pretty deep water.

If you do the boat/trolling thing like at Tofte, you can use all the same tactics folks told you about in that thread. Lots and lots of dead standing timber in Miners, which you'll see if you go there, so be careful.

      Mercury is emitted from coal burning power plants and can travel a long ways.  Sulfate or maybe it is sulfide is from mining.

        So, this Deer runs through the forest all winter without breaking it's neck on anything. Then breaks it's neck by your deck that just happens to have a bird feeder and lots of really big rocks by it? Did the Warden buy it?   Oh yeah nice fish haul.

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.

      Information I have indicates the operator stopped his machine on the marked trail, in a section marked 'Thin Ice'. That is when the machine went through.
