Ely Area Trout Fishing

Recommended Posts


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.

      Del, I have never bothered to skin or scale them as I do not eat the skin or fins. Cliff

      Hope you at least get some rain up there this spring Kelly.  We were pretty dry until the past two months.

      It says 3 amp fuse in the manual. I'm going to run it to the motor battery. I'll post how it works. Thanks skunked again!

      I'm curious about the walleye wings... do you skin or scale them?   Or is it not a problem?

      We miss the leadership of Ricky Rubio ... Teague is a very bad defender and does not see the floor.  Rubio had his best shooting percentage season ever and career points scored of his career.  Wish we could re-do that trade.   Don't get me going .... among players that play the most minutes ... we are now the 7th oldest team in NBA???   2 year window to win ... we should have kept our talent and let the cake bake!

      We still have 24" of ice on the bay & we're only 6-8 miles from where they set the nets. Doubt they'll be starting anytime soon over there.
