Creek fishing really picked up this week following a DFG plant. White mini-jigs, Gold Mepps, Salmon Eggs, Gulp Eggs and Crawlers were the best producers. Parchers Hole, Willow Camp and the Tyee Bridge were the hot spots. Limits were the rule and some lucky angers reported catching and releasing as many as 20 fish in a day.

According to hatchery staff at Mt. Whitney Hatchery, the stocking schedule will return to weekly plants this summer which is highly preferable over the every-other-week stocking last season.

North Lake was on fire this week following DFG and Alpers plants. Some of the resort staff fished the lake on Saturday morning and found wide open fishing on rainbows to 3lbs with a few browns mixed in. Brown jigs was the hot ticket. Shore anglers were also seen doing very well at North.

Wading Weir Pond has also been excellent on a combination of wild Brook and Brown trout and stocked rainbows to 2lbs.
