Fish Report May 5, 2021

Our second week of the new season started out with more windy conditions, but turned out to be quite productive. The biggest lunkers pulled out were just over 9 lbs. Mike snagged a 7 ¼ pounder using a Marvel Fly. Guy caught a 6 ¼ lbs. big one with a night crawler on South Shore. […]

My son and I stayed at Convict Lake Resort last fall. What a magical place!!  The resort is a perfect combination of rustic woodsy feel with modern amenities and conveniences. We stayed at Native #8 cabin and had a wonderful time. The cabin was great and clean with all the modern amenities. The resort itself is excellent with fantastic food and a really cool general store where you can get whatever you need. The surroundings of course are magnificent with a pristine lake nestled amid a backdrop of Sierra Mountains. We fished and hiked and had a special vacation. The best thing about this place is the staff. Huge shout out to Kristen P. she was incredible and made our stay very memorable. Extremely friendly yet very professional everyone there is willing to help. We will be going back for sure and I highly recommend this place to anybody.

This place!!!
Remote yet accessible, mountain setting yet warm and friendly. The staff bends over backwards to help!  Cabins are well insulated and stocked, beds are comfy and warm! The on-site restaurant is well worth it- got to try it just once!! Spring and fall specials, but get your cabin reservations in early- they’re popular! Will definitely come back!
