Bridgeport Reservoir Fishing Report

Bridgeport Reservoir - Bridgeport, CA (Mono County)

by Doug Busey

I talked with Chase from the Bridgeport Marina this week. Fishing has been rated slow. But they recently planted the lake with large rainbows. The weeds have appeared on the south end and they are thick. I would recommend doing some sight fishing in that area for those big powerful trout. If you have a boat, head over to rainbow point and tie on a night crawler. The lake also has a large perch. For more information stop by the Bridgeport Marina.

FISHING METHODS: This is a good time to try a different approach if the standard soaking bait methods aren’t working. If you do choose to go with floating baits leader length is critical and varies lake to lake to keep that tasty morsel above the weeds.

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.
