Conditions on the Reservoir Have Been Perfect!

Bridgeport Reservoir - Bridgeport, CA (Mono County)

Brown Trout

Conditions on the reservoir have been perfect. Swarms of callibaetis, an abundance of midges in all sizes, leeches, immature chubs, and growing numbers of dragon and damselflies. As the water warms in the lake, the fish are heading toward the cooler water of the channels. The flats and the trenches are all holding fish, and much like Crowley, some days they are heavy on the feed and other days it slows down some. The quality here has been great. A good mix of fish sizes with some really nice models making a showing. We are fishing here regularly now so contact us to book a trip on this spectacular reservoir. Level Crystal Leeches, #12-18 Copper Tiger Midges, Parallel Punk Perch, and Zebra midges have been go to patterns.
