Fishing has Been Good for Fly Fishermen!

Angel Lake - Wells, NV (Elko County)

by Aaron Meier

Fishing has been good for fly fishermen using a variety of presentations.  Dry fly fishing has been 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 work.  Small worms seem to work better than PowerBait here.  Also small spinners in black and gold or dark green and gold are also effective at Angel Lake.  The water level is down, making for more shoreline for water access in front of the dam, brush, and trees.
