TOP NEWS: Fishing pressure remains very light and there was a good snow throughout the region this week which made things even slower. For bait and lure anglers, the top bets in the region have been the Twin Lakes at Bridgeport, Bridgeport Reservoir, Silver and Grant lakes in the June Loop for the occasional bigger brown trout, Convict Lake continues to produce some nice quality fish but just fair numbers overall, and Bishop Creek and Rock Creek are pretty fair for skilled stream anglers who are getting browns and holdover rainbows. Fly anglers are seeing a slow to fair bite in the low flows of the East Walker below Bridgeport Reservoir with most fish 12 to 16 inches but a few bigger. Kirman Lake, which broke wide open two weeks ago, become a long slog in the snow and got no fishing pressure this week. Crowley Lake is very good one day and tough the next. There are browns, rainbows, and cutthroats showing in this bite with a lot of fish to 20 inches or better (go to http://sierradrifters.com/ to see the latest photos).
