Silver Lake Resort Fishing Report 6/18 – 6/25/17
What a crazy week here at Silver Lake Resort!!! Mother Nature decided to enforce her strength on us early this week with a huge rain storm on top of peak runoff that sent everyone scrambling to make sand bags to keep Alger Creek in its banks. Without all the help of friends, family, co-workers and all lovers of Silver Lake chipping in to make a few thousand sand bags, I don’t know if we would have made it. A huge thank you to every single person that helped, the true Silver Lake Family Spirit was shown by all who helped in our time of need!!!! Thank you and we love you ALL!!!
With Alger Creek held in its banks people still had some time to get out there and fish this past week. The water temperature is still cold at the surface, sitting around 48 – 50 degrees but it is slowly warming up and we are seeing some very nice fish and some good stringers come out of the lake. Fishing isn’t spectacular and you still need to put some time in but it is starting to get better. I always like to say that the fish are not going to jump into your boat or your lap, you do have to work a little at it and there is no magic ticket. The only magic ticket is patients and perseverance!!! Anglers did see some good results this past week using Night Crawlers, Berkley products like Mice Tails and Pinch Crawlers and we are starting to see some good things trolling using Rapalas or Tasmanian Devils both with a little red or pink in them. Look to find that warmer section of water that is usually about 8 to 10 feet below the top of the water surface and about 5 to 8 feet off the bottom of the lake. Those fish seem to be a little more active in feeding in that part of the lake. The lake level is still at record levels so some of the normal spots to fish aren’t as easily accessible so look outside your normal box and see what happens. We should be getting two loads of fish this week with DFW getting us a load of catchables early in the week and we should be getting a nice healthy load of Desert Springs 3 to 5 pounders this coming Thursday courtesy of Mono County. My spies out there with the fish finders say that there is a lot of fish in the water and they are starting to get active so come on up and put your time in on the lake. This weeks fish pictures are all about our young anglers, as schools are out and summer is here. Put down those electronic devices, grab your fishing rigs and get out there and enjoy the beauty of fishing and all that Mono County and the June Lake Loop has to offer.
Fourth of July is just around the corner and we will be doing our annual Chris Jones Memorial Horseshoe Tournament and BBQ on Tuesday July 4th starting at 11am and we will have the ever famous “Good Livin” playing some great tunes Sunday evening July 2nd from 5 to 7 in our RV park picnic area with free s’mores for all, being handed out by Samantha Jones and her Mammoth High School Girls Basketball Team!!!
Come on out and enjoy family and friends!!
Happy Fishing and We Will See You at The Lake!!!
