Eastern Sierra Fish Report

HOLY COW CUTTHROAT—June Lake continues to live up to its reputation as a monster cutthroat fishery. Jake Gleiberman from Los Angeles pulled in this 11.6-pound cutthroat after thinking he was snagged. It took him 20 minutes, and a trip a quarter mile down the shore and onto two docks.
