Hello Chad,    

Welcome October! Fishing has been good this week.  A decent amount of 4lb fish were brought in this week. The Department of Fish and Wildlife has also stocked this week. It is currently in the high 50's here and the nighttime temperatures are in the high 20's to low 30's. We are starting to see quite a bit of color around the lake. The tops of the trees around the resort are also starting to show some color. 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. Don't forget, our Ambush at the Lake Derby is going on now be sure to sign up!  Our bonus derby weekend will be held on the weekend of October 27th. I hope you all have a great week!
