Angel Lake Fishing Report

Angel Lake - Wells, NV (Elko County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Fishing last Friday was very good at Angel for fly rodders and good for bait and spin fishermen. The usual worms or PowerBait were both successful here as shore anglers were catching a limit for a morning or afternoon’s worth of fishing. With this weekend’s warmer weather, expect fishing to also be good. Small spinners in black and gold, green and gold and black and red are effective. Fishing a royal coachman or trude, elk hair caddis, yellow stimulator or royal humpy with a peacock soft hackle nymph dropper about three to four feet below was very effective last Friday. Tiger Trout were being caught in deeper water by the dam and in the small cove at the northwest portion of the lake, while rainbows were being caught in the center and along the rock wall in the southwest corner of Angel.
