Bridgeport Reservoir Fish Report

Bridgeport Reservoir - Bridgeport, CA (Mono County)

Bridgeport seems to be a hot spot this past week again, especially if you’re fishing from a boat. The trolling has been very good with nightcrawler, rapalas, speedy shiners and some trolling flies, bait fishing from boats has also been producing well with mice tails, crawlers and power bait. Most of the fish are running in the 2 to 4 pound class with a few tipping the scales around 5 pounds. Shore anglers are having limited success casting lures in the early morning and late evening like Rapalas and Thomas Bouyants and during the day they’re picking up some fish with crawlers and mice tails. The shore fishing isn’t as good as the boat fishing but they’re getting into some pretty nice fish here and there. Haven’t talked to any fly anglers on the Reservoir lately but I’d guess with the somewhat colder weather we’ve been having stripping streamers would be the ticket.
