Convict Lake Fish Report

Convict Lake - Mammoth Lakes, CA (Mono County)

by Convict Lake Staff

Catch of the Week:
Dave Brady from Maricopa, AZ caught this 5 pound 11 ounce rainbow back on June 18th. His brother emailed me his photo last week so I decide to put it on this week fishing report. Dave had a double 2 lb leader with Pautzke Balls O' Fire on one leader and red Power Bait on the other. The fish took both baits and hooks. The fish was weighed and measured at Rick's Sport's Center in Mammoth Lakes. Thanks for sending us this photo of your great catch.

The fishing remained good out on Convict Lake and the creek this week. Roostertails, Kastmasters and orange/pink Powerbait worms were the hot tickets. Also try throwing Sierra Slammers or Lip Ripperz. Bite-on Garlic Attractant or Pro-Cure Trophy Trout Super Gel will change an ordinary lure into a fish magnet. In the creek salmon eggs and small spinners like a Roostertails continue to produce stringers. The most successful Powerbait color was rainbow. Chunky Cheese Garlic is always a deathly choice. The South Shore, Jetty and Inlet were the hottest spots this week. Other locations fishing well were Hangman's Tree and North Shore.

Here is a list of other baits/lures that can be productive:
Sierra Slammers, Tasmanian Devil, Green or brown Marvel Fly Lures, Trout Teasers, Panther Martin, NeedleFish, Rooster Tails, and Bite-on Fury Shad or Lip Ripperz Hatchery Dust on Powerbait.

Here is a list of recommended flies:
Dry Flies: Adams, Female Adams, Cutter's Caddis, Elk Hair Caddis, Stimulators, Black/Red Ants, Sierra Bright Dot, Royal Coachman and Hoppers.
Streamers: Wooly Bugger (black, brown, olive, or green), Mutuka (black, brown, olive, or green), Hornberg, and Muddler Minnows.
Wet Flies(Nymphs): Prince Nymph, Flashback Pheasant Tail, Hare's Ear, Zebra Midge (red and black), Copper John (red and copper) and San Juan Worm (brown or red).
