    Angel Lake
    Elko County East Humboldt

    The lake is situated at an elevation of 8,000 feet, covers 13 surface acres, and has a maximum depth of 35 feet. Due to its high elevation, Angel Lake is not accessible to the angler until June in most years and usually remains open until the first snow of October. The entire perimeter of the lake is fishable, however the east side near the dam has the easiest access.

    The season is open the second Saturday in May through the last day of February, any hour of the day or night. Limit is 5 trout per day or in possession.

    Boating Regulations
    Only boats without motors may be used.

    Fish Species

    • Brook Trout
    • Rainbow Trout

    A developed campground is adjacent to the lake, provided by, and administered through the U.S. Forest Service. An additional campground is located 2 to 3 miles down the mountain at Angel Creek. This campground is also operated by the Forest Service.

    Advice and Tips
    Most forms of bait such as worms, salmon eggs and power bait are successful, along with small lures and flies. Good fishing for 7 to 10 inch brook and rainbow trout.

    Getting Here
    FROM WELLS — Exit Interstate 80 at Wells and travel the Angel Lake Highway for 13 miles until you enter the parking lot of the Lake.
