The Big Fish are on the Feed!

Crowley Lake - Mammoth Lakes, CA (Mono County)

John Seeds got this wide bodied rainbow while fishing with Jerry!

by Tom Loe

Fish are now moving into McGee Bay and the North arm in solid numbers. The big fish are on the feed and sipping midges, mayflies, damselflies, and leeches. It has been a day on and day off kind of thing around here. Some days the bite is on and other days you have to move around, change depth and bugs, and possibly locations. We have been getting fish from 6′ out to 18′. The algae is starting to get going in various areas of the lake. The warm weather, coupled with high levels of nitrogen and phosphorous coming in from the Owens channel will produce a solid bloom here in the coming weeks. Good patterns have been our #16 Level Crystal Leech,#16 Parallel Assassin Light and Dark, #16 Parallel Punk Perch, and #18 Crystal Tiger Midge.
