Bridgeport Reservoir

Located just a short distance North of Bridgeport on Hwy 182, this man-made reservoir is fed by the Upper East Walker River, Robinson Creek, Swauger Creek and Buckeye Creek. Below the dam on Bridgeport Reservoir is the beginning of the famed brown trout fishery the East Walker River. Bridgeport Reservoir has two privately owned marina/campgrounds, Bridgeport Reservoir Recreation Area and Paradise Shores RV Park, as well as plenty of public access along the shore for both launching boats or tubes and fishing. 

There is all kinds of fishing to be done on Bridgeport Reservoir, depending on the time of year you can fish from shore, troll, fly fish, bait fish, throw lures or jigs, fish from kayaks and tubes or whatever turns you on. There are great numbers of brown and rainbow trout, as well as Sacramemto perch and carp. The largest brown trout to ever come out of Bridgeport Reservoir weighed in at 22 pounds and in 2000 there was a brown caught that weighed 13lbs 14oz. 2 to 8 pound rainbows are quite common on Bridgeport as well. 

Bridgeport Reservoir is a great place to catch some great fish with the beautiful Eastern Sierra for backdrop!
