Red Lake Fish Report

Red Lake - Bridgeport, CA (Mono County)

by Doug Busey

Last report was 8 inches of ice and the fishing was good. Most anglers were using night crawlers for small rainbows and browns. Josh Otto reported that after he left Caples Lake last week he fished on Red for while and caught 5 brown trout. Josh caught three on a jig and two were caught on tan powerbait. many people would think to go out farther for deeper water. Most of the fish caught on Red Lake are caught within 10 to 40 feet from the shore.
