Bridgeport Reservoir Fish Report

Bridgeport Reservoir - Bridgeport, CA (Mono County)

by Tom Loe

We have not fished it this year yet but Jeffery says it has been very good on the calmer days and is better than he has seen in several seasons. Some nice browns showing up as well. The Bridge is low thus far, and Jeffery suggests you fish towards Rainbow Pt., or along the eastern shoreline near the launch ramp and dam. The weeds are just beginning to become an issue and you need to identify where the lines and channels are before trolling a streamer pattern. Keep you flies down in the ten foot range. Leeches, and perch fry imitations are best #10-12.

Still water nymphing is also a good bet on the calmer days and you will see a few early callibaetis may flies as well as chironomids emerging. Keep the patterns in the #14-18 range.

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
