Fishing has been good. Sterling and Regina Peters jumped at the first milder weather window, grabbed a rental boat, and got out their trolling gear. After sending red and gold Thomas Bouyants out during the morning, rumor has it that the missus soundly trounced the mister, bringing in the greater share of several plump Rainbows. Dave Jones used a Rapala with a brown trout pattern and wouldn’t you know it, caught himself a very respectable Brown weighing in at a shade under 3 lbs. Another angler, Mario Garcielita of Boyle Heights, trolled an unusual Rapala Silver Shad and collected three rainbows on his stringer despite mounting winds. Not to be outdone, former Bridgeport resident Mike Booher assembled a mass of Los Banos buddies and clobbered the resident Rainbow population, showcasing his own 4.8lb trout while William Gilardi managed to sneak up on the “top fish” honors by grabbing a 4.2 pounder for himself. Others in the group, including Jared Crist, Drake Cook, Alec Barcellos, and several young fish-slayers-in-training snatched up a multitude of rainbows that ranged from the pound to 2.5 lb. range. They reported that pink and green PowerBait and the ol’ trusty night crawlers enabled them to amass their impressive fish feed. A big group for sure! (Did I say “pontoon boats?” We have two now that are available for rent; they hold seven people each). Report provided by Chase at the Bridgeport Marina and Campground at 760-932-7001.

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.
