Silver Lake Fish Report
Water temp has risen slightly improving the catching. Lake level is still high reducing shore fishing to roadside near Resort and marina. There's a hatch appearing in mornings when winds are calm so this is a good time to be out in a tube or kayak tossing flies. Put in at the day use parking area near the south end of the lake. Tom at the dock suggests boaters hit the east side along the cabins to the island trolling red and gold Buoyants or brown trout Rapalas. Some nice 4 to 5 pound Rainbows and Browns have found there way to a stringer in the same area hitting on night crawlers, white and pink mice tails, garlic power bait, and garlic pinched crawlers. The Resort put in Oregon 4 to 7 pounders this week with future drops in Aug, Sept, and Oct.
June Lake Fish Report
June is pretty much the best choice for shore anglers since most of it is easily accessible. Throw out the usual baits and lures. Boaters have been hauling in "stockers" near the marinas and northeast end. To hook up the bigger Rainbows and Cutthroats during mid-summer you gotta be trolling 7 to 9 colors lead-core and even deeper with down riggers. "Silver", one of our locals has been git'n 'em lately at about 7 colors with red and gold Phoebies and hanging a night crawler on a Wedding Ring. Needlefish and Tazmanian Devils are go to as well. Abby at June Lake Marina tells me 5 to 7 colors morning, 8 to 9 mid-day. June got a load of 3 to 5 pound Oregonians recently with more due in Aug. and Sept.
Gull Lake Fish Report
Gull has been kicking out a steady stream of DFW planted rainbows mostly from boats near the campground and back bay. If you look in their big fish book at the marina there's been some nice 2 to 5ers caught dropping in salmon peach and garlic Power Bait. Trolling is scoring with Buoyants and Needlefish 3 to 4 colors. Oregon 5 to 10 pounders were put in last week with more coming next week. You'll see me out there try'n to get one!
