Team Sierra, a group of friends and family members from Southern California, has made Convict Lake their annual vacation destination every Opening Day for the past several years. The group arrives early, setting up at its favorite spot on the south shore at midnight and waiting until sun-up to cast a line. This year the group saw record numbers (top), with 21 attending the annual fishstravaganza. Shown at bottom left are Jeff and John Diaz with Jeffâ€™s 4.1-lb. rainbow; and at far right are Tom and Jesse Diaz with their healthy stringers.
