Fishing Report

June 24, 2011

South Fork Bishop Creek
Reduced flows have really improved the water conditions on the creek. The fishing has remained excellent along most of stretches of the creek with some solid fish in the 2 - to 3-pound range.
Most folks are really doing well in the slower moving pools and deep pockets. More solid 2-pound plus rainbows along with plenty of pan sized stockers are filling stringers. Thomas Bouyants, worms, mini-jigs, Panther Martins and Thomas Bouyants are producing best.

June 22, 2011

The game may not have counted, but that didn’t stop Bad Company and Red Thunder from going at it Tuesday night in the City of Bishop Softball League, Co-ed B Division.
