I would like to see more water here for this time of year but it is what it is. The Bridge has been ice free for a long time and I have seen plenty of fish rolling near the dam and along the eastern shoreline as I come back form guiding the EW. I would suggest trolling perch fry patterns from a tube around, or near the marina area working towards the Walker inlet. My crystal ball shows more than one HUGE brown getting spanked from here before mid-May. There are sporadic chironomid hatches during the high pressure- warm days and historically still water nymphing the drop-off near Rainbow Pt. will get you into fish during the early season. Stay in 12 feet or more of water.

Jeffery has had a long, hard winter at the Bridgeport marina and may be a tad more "sheepish" than usual, so cut him some slack. He has the hot flies and last minute scoop so go say baaah for me. http://www.bridgeportreservoir.com/
