Bobber fishing is working on some days but slow on other

Angel Lake - Wells, NV (Elko County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Fishing has been good.  Worms or PowerBait fished off the bottom using a slip sinker have been working.  Bobber fishing is working on some days but slow on others.  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.  Small dark colored spinners with contrasting bright spots have caught trout as well.  Just give the spinner enough time to sink close to the bottom before retrieving.
