Bridgeport Reservoir Fish Report

Bridgeport Reservoir - Bridgeport, CA (Mono County)

by Tom Loe

The good news is that the lake has way more water in it than last. The bad news is the heavy weed that has engulfed most of BuckeyeBay and much of the open water towards rainbow Pt. out to 16 feet. The best area for tubers and still water fly fishers will be around the WalkerRiver channel. There are some good size holes in the channel and on most days you should be able to find a spot as it is not nearly as crowded as Crowley. PT's, callibaetis patterns, damsel fly nymphs, and chironomids are good choices. Give Jeffery a call at the marina and he will be happy to point out the open water and set you up with the hot flies or lures.

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
