Youth Ruled When it Came to Landing Bragging Rights Fish at Silver Lake

Silver Lake - June Lake, CA (Mono County)

by Andrew Jones

Another big load of DFG fish and a good looking load of Alpers trout this week have set the bar high for some top quality fish. Your normal staples of dough baits have been steady all week, especially during the heat of the day, try using Salmon Peach or Garlic Power baits. Also doing well are YUM baits. Early in the morning and later in the evening Worms have been producing some nice size Rainbows. Also working well this week was Needle Fish and Thomas Buyounts, tossing them along the South side of the lake. Flies have also continued to do well this week early in the morning and later in the evening when the sun is not beating on the water.

This weeks "Fish of the Week" belongs to the future generations of fishing. 7 Year old Adam Fien of Vacaville who landed a great looking 1 pound 2 ounce rainbow from a boat using Power bait with his Dad and Grandfather. Declyn Selsor of Lancaster caught a great 1 pound 5 ounce rainbow on Rush Creek using a worm while fishing with his Grandfather Larry Manning. Skyler Bowersmith age 11 of Capistrano Valley landed a great 2 pound 2 ounce Rainbow on the shore of Silver Lake using a Thomas Buoyant. MacCoy Lamson age 7 caught a 1 pound 11 ounce rainbow using a Needle Fish but was slightly out fished by his younger brother Cooper Lamson age 4 who landed a 2 pound 7 ounce rainbow also using a Needle Fish with his Dad. The future generations of fisherman are knocking them dead. Nice fishing guys. there were plenty of other great fish brought in this week but this week truly belonged to the younger generation.

Have another great week of fishing on Silver lake and Rush Creek and we will see you in the Loop!!
