Windy weather made for a few rough days this week. Despite the wind, the lake produced some good limits. In the fall, the trout begin coming up from the deeper water. Many 3 ½ to 4 pounders were caught on inflated night crawlers, green garlic power bait, salmon peach power bait, rainbow power bait and […]

HOORAY! WE ARE OPEN AND THE FISHING IS GREAT! After being closed for 2 weeks due to the closure of the Inyo National Forest, the lake is now **OPEN** and the trout are hungry! The weather has definitely gotten cooler so the fish are coming up from the deeper water. The trout seem to like […]
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 […]
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 […]
The bite this week was as hot as the weather. It has been exciting that so many sizeable trout 2 ½ lbs. to 9 ¼ lbs. have come out of Convict this week. The catch has been good all around the lake. Inflated night crawlers, power bait in various colors, and garlic power bait have […]
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 […]
We had a few afternoon thunderstorms again this week, but those didn’t stop the fish from biting. We stocked the lake this week with Oregon rainbows and the county has also stocked the lake with sizable trout. These whoppers are biting! 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 […]
Even though we had some thunderstorms this past week, the fishing was steady. South Shore was very active this week with a wide variety of baits. 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 […]
