Fishing continues to be very good for fly fishermen using a variety of presentations as the fish are getting as much food as they can before the lake freezes over.  Dry fly fishing continues to be productive as has stripping small leech and bugger patterns.  Hoppers, stimulators, elk hair caddis, Adams, Griffith’s gnats, red quills and just about any small dry fly should still work. Bait anglers are not doing quite as well, but fishing is still fair to good for them.  Small worms seem to work better than PowerBait here.  Also small spinners in black and gold or dark green and gold are effective at Angel Lake.  The water level is down, making for more shoreline for water access in front of the dam, brush, and trees.
