UTm-p» INDEPENDENT (AX) PKSS-TEIEGMM (PM)-C5 . DONNELL CULPEPPER Weekend roundup for ocean. Sierra Weekend roundup and prospects for the next: Once again, there was plenty of good news from the eastern slope of the Sierra Nevada, all the way from Bishop to Bridgeport, but the trout reports from the western slope were beginning to look a bit on the dismal side. A.E. Naylor. manager of Region 4 of the Department of Fish and Game with headquarters in Fresno, reported that trout-planting personnel were having to eliminate some plants because of the drought and water too warm for trout survival. Region 4 embraces part of the Kern River. Tulare County. Tuolumne. Stanislaus, Merced, Mariposa, Madera and Fresno Counties. Numerous streams in those counties already are too low to support any kind of trout. The western slope has suffered more from the drought than the eastern, mostly because there are many man-made reservoirs on the western slope that were designed for irrigation and generating power. There are many natural lakes on the eastern slope and in the back county. Some are low because of the lark of rainfall and some because of natural evaporation, but mostly, they are near normal. For instance. Upper Twin Lake at Bridgeport was never higher in all its history, and it was producing limit catches of trout last week. The kokanee bite had started there. JUMPING FROM THE SIERRAS to the ocean south of San Diego--and that's a long jump for anybody--we find that the yellowtail bite has slowed, or at least did slow, on Sunday when 863 anglers on 30 boats caught 637 yellowtail. 16 bluefin tuna. 58 bonito, 53 barracuda, 450 kelp and sand bass, a half-dozen halibut and 500 rockfish. Those 30 boats were not the only ones fishing around the Coronado Islands. Of those 30, some were regular party boats out of the San Diego landings, the others charter boats out of the same places. Despite the high waves that were being generated over the weekend along the Southern California coast, there were many small private boats trying for yellows and bluefin. However, the bluefin were not very cooperative: mostly, they almost disappeared. Going back to the eastern slope of the Sierras again: There were numerous catches of brood-stock rainbow and brown trout almost in the city limits of Bishop. Cobbie Chapman. Santa Ana. took two three-pound trout out of Bishop Creek on worms; Louis Martinez, San Pedro, got a four-pound rainbow in South Lake, and there were limits of holdover trout. The lake still has not been planted this season because of access difficulty for the DFG truck. Some limits were reported in Sabrina Lake. Walt Hancy got a 3-8 rainbow on a small spinning jure, while Larry Miller took a five-pounder on floating cheese. TROUT WERE CAUGHT IN ALL kinds of ways- worms, red and yellow eggs, various sizes of spinners, trolled needlefish and Rapala lures. Several large brown trout were caught on needlefish in Rock Creek Lake, which hasn't been in the news lately. Crowley had fair to good trout fishing in the mornings and excellent fishing for Sacramento fish in the late afternoons. The Owens River at Benton Crossing, which is planted regularly, produced some limits of rainbows. Convict and all of the Mammoth Lakes (Mary, George. Mamie and Twin) were good for pan-size trout Trailers were getting fish in June, Gull and Silver on Dave Davis rigs loaded with worms. There was a definite pickup in fly fishing over the weekend, especially on the West Walker River and Robinson Creek. Robert Glassey got a three-pound rainbow and a 4-8 brown In Bridgeport Reservoir with a trolling rig. One more thing about trout fishing in any part of the state. You may catch a limit (10 fish, fewer in some waters) and you may possess 10 fish, no more. A woman caller Monday said that she had caught four limits of trout in the Inyo-Mono country and she could not understand why she could bring home just 10 fish. I'm sorry, but that's the law and only the Fish and Game Commission can change it. The woman assured me that she was starting a drive to change it Good luck, lady, but in the meantime, keep within the law.
