Big Rock Resort (760)648-7717. Lopp and Lopp Inc. (that would be David Lopp and his son Parker) and myself fished June last Sun. in a Big Rock boat and got our limits all on Garlic Pinched Crawlers. We tried other baits but at some point figured why bother and stick with what’s working. In addition to the right bait the other key for me is location and keep moving a little if not getting bit. Don’t sit in one spot for hours and not catch anything. This is true in a boat or on shore.

June Lake Marina (760)648-7726. Randy at the Marina said those Garlic Pinched Crawlers (what a surprise) and Chartreuse Garlic Powerbait are working best. Apparently trout like garlic - go figure. Get this: Little big man 6 yr. old Milo from Chico literally dragged in a 3-1/2lb Cutthroat onshore near the boat ramp using a mini jig. I’d say that qualifies as this report’s Sierra Moment. The Marina brought in their own load of Oregon Rainbows this past week to their trout pens to be released through the rest of the season. Keep in mind they have recently fitted some of their rental boats with Bimini tops. We like shade! As usual trolling has been good for those deeper and larger Cutts, Bows, and Browns dragging Taz Devils, Trolling Tube Flies, Needlefish, and Tommy Boys (Thomas Buoyants). According to Dan and Kitty who are on the lake daily it’s time to go a bit deeper say 7 to 8 colors lead core. This may increase up to 10 as the Summer goes on.

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.
