Bridgeport Reservoir Fish Report for 8-25-2009
Bridgeport Reservoir Fish Report- Update by Josh Hevron 8-16-09
Bridgeport Reservoir - Bridgeport, CA (Mono County)
by The Trout Fitter Staff
Best fishing times are very very early or just before sunset due to warm water conditions.
The water in the reservoir is getting warm fast. The algae and weeds are present but the res is still fishing great!
Fishing Conditions and Hatches: Excellent
High water and fish concentrated at the inlets.
Fishing is as good as it gets! Rainbow bay is a great spot to fish early. If you are lucky, you can fish dry callibeatis patterns in the morning. Indicator fishing has been producing best in the weed channels. Make sure to check your flies are clean if your not getting grabs. Buckeye has really been fishing well with either grey and black or olive Optimidges.
Damsels in yellow or light green #14 - #16. Callibaitis Poxyback, Hares Ears, Pheasant tails all in #14 - #16 Scuds, Water boatmans, Punk Perch all in #14 - #16 as well.
Midges- Zebras, Copper Tiger, Chartreuse in #12 - #18 Tan or Gold in #14
Stripping Doublebunnys, Punk Perch, Olive or brown Wooleybuggers, Mohair Leeches (small) in brown, orange, or olive is another highly effective method right now.
Guides Hint: Fish with heavy(3x) leaders and tippet so you can keep fish from freight training to the weeds once hooked! This is the place to get big Crowley sized fish without big Crowley sized crowds!

Greetings from Patagonia. I\'m writing to let you know what\'s been happening with us recently and to remind you that this corner of the planet still remains among the very best places inn the world to chase wild trout with a fly rod. That fact holds especially true for the Rio Cisnes valley which continues to be a relatively quiet and forgotten gem despite an explosion of new lodges and outfitters in the surrounding area in recent years.
