Bridgeport Reservoir Trout Fly Fish Report

Bridgeport Reservoir - Bridgeport, CA (Mono County)

by The Trout Fitter Staff
(800) 637-6912

Water Conditions:
Warm temps up top but cool temps 10ft and deeper and low water levels.

Fishing Conditions and Hatches:FAIR
The res. Is VERY low. Boats can no longer launch at the marina. There is dirt area's to launch down toward the damn with no docks. Not many reports coming in from here.
Your best bet would be fishing early and late out of float tubes pulling big streamers by the damn. The Res. Does hold VERY large brown trout that do get active in the fall and isn't one to pass up for the angler that is willing to put time in for a great reward.
Type 3-6 full sink fly lines with double bunnies, bunny leaches and crayfish imitations are what I would be fishing when I goĶ

Recommended Flies:
As we come into fall patterns big is good! I'm never one to say "big fly, big fish". EXCEPT For here!
Zonkers- olive, white, black, brown, rust, purple. Leeches- " same as above" Double bunny's Maybe follow these up with a small pt. or hares ear

Guide's Hint: Be sure to very your retrieve and depth!!!!!!!
