June Lake Loop Report

June Lake Loop - June Lake, CA (Mono County)

by Doug Busey

Silver Lake (Mono County): Has had two loads of Oregon Rainbows put in with another next week making it the go to for 4 to 7 pounders. Pinched Crawlers, Trout Nuggets, and Thomas Buoyant have been scoring.

Rush Creek: Creek is swollen with run-off but is still fishable. Bring your waders or hip boots and be very careful when near the banks watching for undercuts that could collapse. Trout Teasers and Power Eggs have been working tossed upstream and drifted down. A few fly fishermen have reported doing well using the same method with San Juan Worms and adding egg patterns or nymph droppers with a split shot to gain depth.

Grant Lake: Trolling for Browns and Rainbows has been up and down from day to day lately. Possibly due to changing water temps causing the fish to relocate. Best bet is evenings with no sun on the water and a slight wind chop nearer to shore with Rapalas. Due to receive Oregon fish during July and Sept.

June Lake: June has been hot along the east side for shore and boat fishing. Some nice Cutthroats have been hauled in using Power Baits, Thomas Buoyant, and a new jig called "Krakens". Oregon trout due in July.

Gull Lake: Trolling is successful with Thomas Buoyant and Tazmanians say 5 to 8 colors lead core depending on time of day. On Father's Day the bite got a bit regularly with different colors Power Bait and Mice Tails. Key is to locate fish and then most anything works. So keep moving until you find 'em. Oregon trout coming July and Sept.
