Bridgeport Fishing Report

Bridgeport Reservoir - Bridgeport, CA (Mono County)

by Doug Busey

Renee and I joined Tom and Shelly Blotter for the opener this year. We stayed at the Bridgeport Reservoir Marina and Campground.   This was our first time staying at the campground. We usually camp some where on the shore line. They offer tent camping on the lake as well as pull through RV spots with full hook ups.  The marina offers boat launching and mooring as well as boat rentals. They have a well stocked store and primo fish cleaning station.   The staff is well educate on the where abouts and how to catch big fish. Tom and I trolled the lake for three days and caught and released over 50 good sized rainbows and browns, with the average fish in the 14 to 17 inch class. We also caught a few in the 2 to 5 lb class. Funny thing about the lake, you will find that most boat anglers head to the other side of the lake and fish off what is known as Rainbow Point. They anchor and fish with night crawlers or powerbait and do very well.  No special talent to fish this body of water. We had a great experience and have made plans to go back before the temperatures get unbearable. For more information on the Bridgeport Marina call them at 760-932-7001 and ask for Chase.

Good luck on your next fishing adventure. If you have a question. a report in our local fishing area or have a photo of your catch, send it to [email protected]. Hope to see you on the waters. Good fishin' and tight lines.
