Bridgeport Reservoir Fly Fishing Report (home of the fly fishing sheep)

Bridgeport Reservoir - Bridgeport, CA (Mono County)

by Tom Loe

One of my favorite still waters is suffering from low water levels. I have it from a "some what reliable source" haha...that the deepest part of the lake is 24 feet currently. The water temps have cooled a bunch so we made it past this hurdle without any evidence of a significant fish kill due to warm, or poorly oxygenated water. Fly fishing reports are still few, and those I get say it remains slow. The fish will be concentrated off Rainbow Pt. then migrating into the deeper water toward the dam as it continues to cool down. I suggest streamers like Loebergs and Punk Perch olive. Midge activity will be done soon, although still water nymphing with tiger midges near the ledges on the east shoreline would be a good technique on a warm high pressure day the next couple weeks. Jeffery has the RV Park and some rental boats ready to go here. Tell him I said BaaaH!
