Eastern Sierras, Oct. 6 Report

GENERAL UPDATE: The general trout season is open through Nov. 15. Top Eastern Sierra fishing report websites are: KensSport.com (Bridgeport region), TheTroutFly.com, and SierraDrifters.com.

TOP NEWS: Plants continue to be reduced, with none on the DFW schedule for this week in Inyo or Mono County. The top action: Crowley Lake has continued to produce a lot of rainbows and cutthroats from 16 to 24-inches for fly anglers fishing midges and tiny perch fry imitations. It probably has the best fishing in the region right now. Other good bets include both Upper and Lower Twin Lake near Bridgeport, Virginia Lakes, Convict Lake, and Sabrina.
Top Fish: In Robinson Creek, Billy Hayes, Lake Tahoe, landed a 4-5 rainbow on a worm.
