Hello Chad,    

This past week was one for the books. We have stocked the lake multiple times this month which has made for some great fishing! It is currently in the mid 60's here and the nighttime temperatures have started to drop. We got some rain today and there is more in the forecast for this week. A decent amount of 4-5lb fish were brought in this week. Desert Springs Hatchery brought 400 lbs of trophy sized trout on Thursday. We have stopped serving lunch on the front lawn but we will remain serving breakfast burritos Friday-Sunday until further notice. The Restaurant at Convict Lake is also open daily. I hope you all have a great week! Don't forget, our Ambush at the Lake Derby is going on now, be sure to sign up!

Tactics and Bait

We had another great week of fishing here at Convict Lake. Some big fish were brought in this week. Powerbait was defiantly working the best on the lake (lime green and yellow).

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.
