Fishing Report for Northern Nevada, Sierra and Beyond: Aug. 1

by Don Quilici ANGEL LAKE, ELKO COUNTY, NEV: The Nevada Department of Wildlife (www.ndow.org) reports: Fishing varies from day to day, with some days being good, while others being slow. Best time of day is from about 6:00 am to 10:30 am and then again after the shadows start to hit the water in late afternoon. Best conditions seem to be with a 5 to 10 mph breeze, putting a small chop on the water. A few fish are being taken with small dry flies, mostly yellow in color, but most of the luck is still coming with nymphs below an indicator or dry fly. Expect dry fly fishing to pick up now. Early in the day, about three feet below the indicator, but as the sun climbs in the sky, start fishing the dropper deeper. PT’s, blue copper Johns, olive hares ears, and olive soft hackles all should be productive. Small olive wooly and crystal buggers on a sink tip line should be productive as well. The usual small spinners, worms and Power Bait are also effective here for bait and spin anglers. Start fishing off of the bottom and move up in the water column if you don’t get any hits. ​ BOCA RESERVOIR, CALIF: Mountain Hardware and Sports of Truckee (530-587-4844) (mountainhardwareandsports@gmail.com) reports: Okay, the DFW has had Boca on the stock list now for 3 weeks and continues to pull its’ name off that list. Supposedly they stocked it last week but what reports I’ve been receiving have been contradictory to that. So, if they actually decided to stock this lake last week you should be able to catch some fish! If you’re after the stockers I would concentrate my efforts on the shoreline up and down from the boat launch....
