Get Out Early and Fish Deep

June Lake - June Lake, CA (Mono County)

 June Lake Marina (760)648-7726. According to Cody and Randy there they released 1500lbs of Rainbows from their trout pens last week. This in addition to the 1500lbs released last week of July so ya got plenty of fish out there. They both emphasize to get to it early and fish deep. Most consistent approach has been hitting it no later than 6:00am trolling lead core and/or down riggers 40 to 50’ hooking into larger Rainbows and Cutthroats. Best lures for this have been Tasmanian Devils, Arctic Fox trolling flies, Speedy Shiners, and Thomas Buoyants. Some late afternoon trollers have been doing well also.

Big Rock Resort (760)648-7717. Same results here as the marina. Trolling deep and early is the way to go. Bait fishing is working from boat or shore with the early and deep approach. Alisa is happy to report that the Resort’s available Chef Laura’s sandwiches and expanded wine selection have become a hit with customers. Her dad Mike sounds his usual refrain this time of year “Fish Harder!”

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.
