SOUTH-NORTH-INTAKE 2-BISHOP CREEK (WEST OF BISHOP):

The Bishop Creek Lodge (760-873-4484) checked in with this report: The weather has been different each day. Early in the week was great then some breezes came up on Wednesday which went to stiff breezes on Saturday.

South:The top trout was a 7-pound, 14-ounce Alper’s on a white tube jig and mealworm. The lake is beginning to go down a little (about an inch per day) but is still full. The fishing has been great with a full stocking by F&G on Monday and Tim Alpers on Thursday. Most anglers are catching full limits with Power Bait being the most popular bait. Trolling has really picked up with good results using lead core line at four colors with a Needlefish lure.

North: Power Bait and nightcrawlers were the top ticket. Thomas Buoyant and Kastmaster lures did real well. Fly fishermen were using the brown or olive Matuka or olive Funky Bugger flies.

Intake No. 2: The top trout was a 6-pound, 1-ounce rainbow on a nightcrawler. Power Bait and nightcrawlers were the top ticket. Thomas Buoyant and Kastmaster lures did real well. Fly fishermen were using the brown or olive Matuka or olive Funky Bugger flies.
