Bridgeport Reservoir is fishing well but results depend on technique and bait

Bridgeport Reservoir - Bridgeport, CA (Mono County)

by Jim Reid

The Reservoir has still been producing some good fish though it's not automatic. We haven't heard much for good reports from the shore but the boat anglers are getting into some nice fish. Trolling with lead core and small Rapalas, Thomas Bouyants and needlefish has been a good technique, and for the bait anglers go with Gulp clusters, power bait and crawlers. The perch are still pretty active on the troll and there was a 3 lb 8 oz fish caught this week, this fish was just 2 ounces short of a new state record!
