Bridgeport Reservoir Fishing Report

Bridgeport Reservoir - Bridgeport, CA (Mono County)

by Doug Busey

Renee and I ventured up and camped for a few days. The water level is up and the marina is open for launching and mooring. They also offer RV and tent camping right on the lake shore, if you're  really adventurous try one of the Tent cabins as we did. Plenty of room with a queen sized bed and your own personal deck to watch the sun go down. The first day we trolled from 630 AM to about 1PM ( we did have the canopy up ) . The day time temp was only in the mid 80's, but the direct sun exposure felt like over 100. We caught and released 17 rainbows all around the 14 to 18 inch range. Next day I fished from 6 AM until 10 Am and caught 15 rainbows in the same category, with the exception of one 4 lb BFEF tagged rainbow. We were using  J7 blk/silver or Perch colored Rapalas.  Many anglers anchor across the lake off of rainbow point with nightcrawlers. For more information stop by the Bridgeport Marina.

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.
