Catch of the Week:
Congratulations to Shebly Rosell from Brea, CA with a whopper pulled from Convict Lake. She was using a Power Worm when she scored this stout 4 pound 12 ounce rainbow. Great job Shebly! Pete Rosell also with a nice fish. Pete hooked a 3 pound 15 ounce rainbow.

Tactics/Bait:
The water levels in the creek hasn't hurt the fishing to date. DFG is still stocking and a 2 pounder was caught out of it this week by Cade Castillo from Menifee, CA. Getting out on a boat and trolling will definitely increase your odds. Trolling has continued to produce some nice fish over the last few weeks. Use a Needlefish,Tasmanian Devils or Marvel Fly Lures. Needlefish was the hot lure this week. The most successful Powerbait color was salmon. Chunky Cheese Garlic is always a deathly choice. The South Shore and Inlet were the hottest spots once again this week. Other locations fishing well were the North Shore and Hangman Tree location.

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).
