Virginia Lakes Fish Report

Virginia Lakes - Bridgeport, CA (Mono County)

by Carolyn Webb

The weather has been anything but bad this past week, making ice fishing a bad idea. Little Virginia has about 60% ice which is rotten but the open water is producing well. Big Virginia is not thawing as fast but should be ice free depending on the weather in about 8 days. Trumbull Lake is ice free.

Worms, according to Webster, any numerous slender soft-bodied, legless, bilaterally symmetrical inverterbrates. Trout only see food, we see a method to entice wary trout into eating something that we present in a most sensual way as to make trout believe it is food.

It's breezy but not enough to stop the watercraft or shore anglers. Big Fish: John McIntosh of Gardnerville caught a nice 5lb and a 3lb Alpers on...... Read More
