Angel Lake - Wells, NV (Elko County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Fishing has been good here depending upon the day.  Worms or PowerBait fished off the bottom using a slip sinker have been working.  Bobber fishing is picking up.  Good flies for stripping include small leeches, crystal buggers, slumpbusters and wooly buggers. This is the perfect water for a dry and a dropper.  Dries should include elk hair caddis, small hoppers, yellow stimulators, royal trudes, royal Wulff’s and red or yellow humpies.  Nymphs such as PT’s, hares ears, zebra midges, soft hackles and chironomids fished under the dry flies should be productive. This lake was stocked with approximately 2,200 rainbow trout in early July for a total of approximately 4,800 fish so far this year.
