Hi Fellow Anglers!!!!!!!!
Since then, the late morning winds in May still tend to come up. Put on a wind jacket and knit cap and get out there early. The wind chill definitely changes air temperature but the water temp is a steady 48 to 54 degrees. Nice for the fishing.
The bait fishing has been consistent over at Rocky Point and Rainbow Point in about 9 to 11 feet of water with inflated night crawlers or a dab of Power Bait to keep it off the bottom. Also the word is out to add a mini marshmallow to the worm which also helps keep it off the bottom and in the line of sight for 2 to 5 pound rainbows. Dip your bait concoctions in the stink stuff such as Berkley Trout Dip to entice them even more.
Trolling has been also very good. We are seeing some brown trout up to 3 pounds as well as a number of rainbows 12 to 16 inches lip locking to Rapalas, Thomas Buoyants, and flashers with a 3 foot leader to a night crawler. Troll with monofilament from the marina to Rocky Point and up towards Rainbow Point in the morning. For the evening trollers head toward the narrows in deeper water.
The midge hatch is coming on strong so the fly anglers are enjoying the midging when they are hooking rainbows and browns up to 20 inches just north of the marina. Floating line is fine. Brassies, Zebra midges and Pheasant Tail nymphs are great bottom flys. A hornberg trailing a #20 red Copper John on full sink line this morning landed a beautiful 5 pound 24 inch rainbow. Way to go George Casselman!
As always we are always happy to have you share your fishing adventures with us at the Bridgeport Reservoir-RV and Marina and surrounding areas.
'til next trout,
