June Lake Marina, (760)648-7726. The Marina released 2000lbs of 3 to 4 pounders the week before the 4th which have been showing up on stringers since. They continue releases from those pens throughout the season. Shelby in the store recommends trolling lead core 5 to 8 colors with Thomas Buoyant red dot frog, rainbow, and red and gold. Other good choices at June are Needlefish, Arctic Fox tube trolling flies, Tazmanians, and a threaded nightcrawler with a Dodger. They now have a “fleet” of 15 pontoon boats. Reserve way ahead as they are super popular.

Big Rock Resort, (760)648-7717. Alisa there tells me lots of 3 to 4lbs being brought in trolling 7 to 8 colors. Her tip of the week is handle the bait as little as possible and cover your scent with some stinky stuff. Very important after using sunscreen. Fish don’t like it. New additions at the Resort are online boat reservations soon, Chef Laura sandwiches, and an expanded selection of adult beverages. As we were talking two ladies came in with a nice Cutthroat and Rainbow caught trolling 3 to 4 colors. They were on the lake at 5:30 so didn’t need to be as deep as during mid-day.

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.
