Hello Chad,    

Well, it was another spectacular week here at Convict Lake. We had a week of cooler weather but not to worry it is warm again. It is currently back in the high 70's to low 80's here. Our little bear friend has been spotted a few times this week wandering around the resort in search of food. Yes, he is adorable but please do not feed him. Fishing this week has been awesome. A decent amount of 4-5lb fish were brought in this week. We are quickly approaching fall which means we will be offering our Fall Lodging Specials. For more information please visit our website or checkout the information below. I hope you all have a great week!

Here is a list of other baits/lures that also work well: Panther Martins, Tasmanian Devils, green or brown Marvel Fly Lures, Kastmasters, NeedleFish, Roostertails, and garlic scent on Powerbait.
