Silver Lake Resort Fishing Report 4/30 – 5/7/17

May 7, 2017 7:22 am by Andrew Jones

It has been a glorious week here at Silver Lake with the best Spring Weather we have seen this season and the fishing is starting to slowly pick up!!!  Temperatures this week were in the high 60’s to low 70’s which helped to slowly warm up that cold water, which in turn helped see some better action on the lake.  With that warmer temperatures we saw a huge increase in the volume of water pouring into Silver Lake this week due to all the snow melt.  The lake itself easily raised a good 5 to 6 feet and we are sitting at a level we haven’t seen in fifteen to twenty years!!!!  While this amount of water rolling into the lake is a good thing, it does make fishing, or rather the catching side of fishing, a little more difficult as the lake is a little murky from sediment being stirred up and extremely cold water as the temperature of the lake is roughly 45 to 48 degrees.  However, that didn’t stop our die hard fishermen from getting out there and hauling in some great fish this week.  We started to see some consistent stringers come in when there was a slight breeze and ripple on the water and we saw a number of great 4 to 5 pounders come in towards the end of this week.  Rod Hanson had a great catch of 4 pounds 4 ounces caught using Worms, young Victor Lopez had a nice Brown weighing in at 2 pounds 3 ounces caught using worms and the catch of the season so far is Frank Rodriquez who landed a nice 5 pound 6 ounce Rainbow using a Mice Tail.  See the theme?  Worms, Worms, Worms, Plastic Worm and more Worms!!!  Keep it up towards the surface as the water temp below the surface is even colder.  Think like a fish and you will be rewarded.  The weather is suppose to change back to common spring conditions early this week with some snow in the forecast early this but better conditions in the middle to end of the week.  Come on up to enjoy the beauty of the June Lake Loop and the Eastern Sierra where the water levels and streams are at a spectacular level.  Come Enjoy!!!

See You At The Lake!!!

Fish of the Week:

Frank Rodriquez of Chino had the catch of the week when his Rainbow he caught from the shore of Silver Lake weighed in at 5 pounds 6 ounces caught using a Berkley Mouse Tail.  Those bigger Rainbows we stocked thanks to Mono County last week are starting to show Up.  Nice catch Frank!!
