Pretty Much the Best You can get here on Most Days!

Bridgeport Reservoir - Bridgeport, CA (Mono County)

Pretty much the best you can get here on most days. Big fish showing up as they move into the channels to cool off and escape the rising lake temperatures. Fish are feeding heavily on callibaetis and damsels along the weed lines. Getting the boat in the right position is of great importance and changing depths as the fish move on and off the ledges will keep you in the bite all day. Afternoon winds have been coming up and our assassin patterns have kept the fish interested when the white caps are up.  #14-16 Level Crystal Leeches, #14-16 Assassins Light, #12-18 Copper Tiger Midges, Parallel Punk Perch, and Zebra midges have been go to patterns.

If you would like to go fly fishing with Sierra Drifters give them a call at (760) 935 4250 and for more information visit their website
