It was an excellent fishing opener and everyone at the resort is looking forward to an exciting 2015 fishing season. The snow on Saturday didn’t stop the fishermen from getting out on the lake and landing some nice fish. Many happy anglers came by the store with full stringers and limits both on Saturday and Sunday. Below I posted some of the larger fish of the weekend. Plus the requests of the Opening Weekend Derby at Convict Lake.
Every Saturday this season I’ll be sending out Convict Lake’s weekly fishing report. Stay tuned for future reports….
