Fish Angora Lakes

Added by The Outbound Collective

Small trout magnet. Relatively quiet, so you could be by yourself. Best at sunrise or sunset.

Angora Lakes is a lake located just 6.5 miles from South Lake Tahoe. The upper lake has the best fishing for small trout. Because the water is so clear, they often only bite when the lake is shaded at dawn and dusk, and they go into lockjaw mode when sunlight is on the water.
