FISH REPORT AUGUST 26, 2021

Many sizeable trout have come out of the lake this week.  The best hint for all of you anglers is to go out early or late and go down deep and slow. The fish seem to be interested in inflated night crawlers, Pinched Crawlers, garlic power bait, and Mice Tails.  Those who prefer to use […]

Anglers had another successful week at the lake. They had to get out there early and go down deep due to the very hot weather that we had. South Shore and North Shore have been the better areas.  Using inflated night crawlers and garlic power bait have been the best baits to choose once again […]

FISH REPORT AUGUST 12, 2021

Convict Lake was stocked with 600 pounds of trophy size trout last week.  The hot summer weather usually means the bite slows down in August, however, the catch at the lake has been steady.  Convict has still been producing plenty of these bigger trout.  The best time to be out is early in the morning […]

Convict Lake has been putting out more whoppers again this week.  South Shore and North Shore were the hot areas for trolling and shore fishing.  It seems some of the big rainbows like hanging out in front of the marina which has also been great for bait fishing. Once again, the key is to go […]

With the warmer weather the trout are going deeper to cooler water.  Anglers are […]

Fishing was excellent again this week at Convict Lake.  With the warmer weather, the trout are going deeper. Anglers are getting better results by fishing around first light and again around dusk. Trout are most active when the sunlight is weakest.  Inflated night crawlers and garlic power bait are still doing the job.  If you […]

Garlic power baits, garlic pinched crawlers, inflated night crawlers, and the Red and Gold Thomas Buoyant lures have been the tickets for the big ones. Trolling the Inlet and […]

FISH REPORT JUNE 30, 2021 The hot weather, full moon, and the afternoon thunderstorms made fishing a bit tricky this week. Despite all of this, many people caught their limits. Going down deep  (7 or 8 colors if trolling)  and using garlic power bait and inflated night crawlers worked best. Department of Fish and Wildlife […]

The big ones have been hitting on inflated night crawlers, garlic pinched crawlers and as always, garlic power bait.  The weather has been quite warm, so they have gone down deeper.  All areas of the lake were productive from the shore and from the boats.
