Convict Lake had a very exciting Opener this year! Many full stringers came in this past weekend! Winds were mostly calm with a little chop in the afternoon. The largest fish was a 6. 4 lb. rainbow caught on a nightcrawler. OurROUND UP AT THE LAKE DERBY is off to a great start as well. We are starting to see signs of spring around the resort and temps are starting to rise. We hope to see you all this season at the lake!
