Fish Report-Freshwater, Sept. 16

TOP NEWS: Fishing pressure has dropped to almost nothing since Labor Day weekend. Top bets in the region are the Virginia Lakes with a lot of nice holdover and stocker trout showing for fly, lure, and bait anglers, Crowley Lake for fly anglers tossing streamers to perch-chasing browns, rainbows, and cutthroats, and all of the higher elevation waters above 8,500 feet where the leaves are turning color and the brook trout and stacking up in the stream mouths for the spawn. Other good bets include Convict Lake, which has cranked out some real quality stockers again this past week. The East Walker River flows remain very low but the fishing is good, mostly on smaller fish now, and there is very light fishing pressure. Rock Creek and Bishop Creek are good for stream anglers, too. Trout plants back this week.
