Bridgeport Reservoir - Bridgeport, CA (Mono County)

The “Bridge” has water, & is in the best shape we have seen in several seasons.

by Tom Loe

The lake is in the best condition we have seen in several seasons. As water temps climb, the migration of trout towards the cooler inlets in Buckeye Bay, & the Walker area will increase. The submerged channels are well defined if you have a good sonar. The Bridge fishes best for fly fishers when the trout “channel up” in these locations. Damsel flies, callibaetis, perch fry, and midges are all on the menu now. Hang a Parallel Perch or Parallel Assassin in the channel proper and you will get grabs.

For those of you looking for a unique, and profitable business opportunity here in the Sierra, the Bridgeport Lake Marina is for sale. This facility is pretty much a turn key recreational business that has an established RV Park, small general store, and boat marina. Here is the listing informationlink.
