Trout deep at Convict Lake

Convict Lake - Mammoth Lakes, CA (Mono County)

As we roll into mid-summer the fishing hasn't really dropped off. The number of anglers fishing the lake has increased, so the result is an increased number of people getting skunked. This doesn't mean the fishing is bad, it just means you have to change your tactics. Folks are still landing big fish at the lake. We had 8 fish over six pounds check-in at the store this week. I'm not sure of the depth these fish were caught at but in general you will have to go deep. The feedback I'm getting from boaters with fish finders is that most fish are holding at 50-60 feet. One angler that was trolling with lead core was consistently getting his limit using a Tasmanian Devil at 8-9 colors. Mice Tails and Mini Jigs are also killing it. Make sure you are getting deep and jigging off the bottom.
