Abundance of Water this Year!

Bridgeport Reservoir - Bridgeport, CA (Mono County)

BPR looks to be in great shape with an abundance of water this year. For those of you who tuned in last winter, some larger model fish got dropped into this place. Many have survived the winter and have grown even bigger.  The key to finding trout here is locating a weed free, mud bottom in the 15-20 foot range. I suggest you use the same still water nymph patterns as you might try on Crowley. There are also opportunities to troll streamers with a full sinking line around the marina. Fish are planted at least bi-weelky, and these rascals are more opportunistic than the holdovers on CL. Spruce-A-Bu’s, Loebergs, Punk Perch, Agent Orange, & Crystal Leeches will get grabs. Use the darker colors in low light periods.
