Well I wanted to take my dad fishing as he has never had much luck with the sport. We got to Convict Lake at around 6:30. It wasn’t a bad day at all (for me). Unfortunately even though he was using the same set ups as me he did not catch a single fish. The first fish I caught was a 3lb Brown (on an inflated crawler with a 26” lead). Unfortunately I was planning a catch and release day so I did not bring a cooler. Well as Luck would have it I hooked this brown all the way down his throat so I had to keep him. Most all of the fish caught yesterday were in the 2 to 4 lb range. I ended up catching 2 Browns and 5 Rainbows. Here are some pics of the lake and the 1 fish I had to keep.

Yea it was fun. I might do another day trip to the upper Owens next week to check out my new fly rod. I am still trying to decide between going to Thomas A Edison Lake or Virginia Lakes for the Labor day weekend.

You should check it out in the winter. It's amazing. I haven't been there in about 24 years when my parents took me RVing there. Was the waterfall still there? If not it must be a winter/spring thing with the melting snow.
