Fish Report-Freshwater, July 30

By: [Byline]

TOP NEWS: Overall, the trout fishing remains fair to good throughout the Eastern Sierra. The best fishing continues to be early and late in the day, but deep-water trollers are getting fish during the day, too, on the bigger lakes. Mosquitos are also out in force most places, so bug repellant is recommended. Top fishing spots have been the Virginia Lakes, Grant Lake, and Crowley Lake (for fly anglers), but a lot of fish are coming out of the high elevation waters and hike-in lakes and creeks. East Walker River flows are low (34 cfs) and fishing tough. Bridgeport Reservoir and Convict Lake have been pretty good for anglers fishing very deep water 40 to 60 feet or more, but tough for others. Top catches this week: At Convict Lake, Larry Singh, Indio, had an 8-1 rainbow on a nightcrawler at the inlet. Larry Friebel, Los Angeles, landed a 7-10 from Convict. Grant Lake cranked out a 7-2 rainbow at the narrows on a Kastmaster for Danny Barrett, Victorville. The top fish at the Virginia Lakes this past week were a pair of rainbows at 6-6, one from the litte lake caught by Mark Willardson, Encino, and the other landed by Riley Fantasia, San Diego, from the big lake. At Lake Sabrina, Tim Padilla, San Diego, landed a 5-8 rainbow, one of the Desert Spring Trout Farm trophies planted a couple of weeks ago.
