Hello Chad,    


I apologize for the late report. It has been a very busy week here! We have stocked the lake multiple times this month which has made for some epic fishing! It is currently in the mid 60's here and the nighttime temperatures are in the 30's. A decent amount of 4-5lb fish were brought in this week along with a couple 7 pounders. We have stopped serving lunch on the front lawn but we will remain serving breakfast burritos Friday-Sunday until further notice. The Restaurant at Convict Lake is also open daily. I hope you all have a great week! Don't forget, our Ambush at the Lake Derby is going on now, be sure to sign up!

Tactics and Bait

We had another great week of fishing here at Convict Lake. Some big fish were brought in this week. Powerbait, Inflated Nightcrawlers and flat fish lures are working the best. For those of you who are not familiar with flat fish lures they are a trolling lure normally bright in color. 


Here is a list of other baits/lures that also work well: Panther Martins, Tasmanian Devils, green or brown Marvel Fly Lures, Kastmasters, NeedleFish, Roostertails, and garlic scent on Powerbait.
