Where To Fish:
Towards the end of last season, 400 pounds of beautiful fish were stocked in Twin Lakes. Those fish are up there waiting to feed on what you have to offer them. Head out early in the morning and launch your float tube to secure the best spots on the lake. Dress warmly but remember you can always take a quick break and pop into Tamarack Lodge for a hot coffee and snack.
Crowley Lake is considered one of the best still water trout fisheries in the country, and it’s for good reason. Hire a guide, take a boat out and have an incredible experience fishing Crowley Lake all while taking in the beauty that surrounds.
The longest river in the Eastern Sierra is also the most famous: the Owens. While folks have been fighting over the rights to the water for generations, people have been fishing here even longer. The Upper stretch of the Owens River is a popular spot to fish for a tackle box full of reasons.
Convict Lake has completely thawed and water levels are considerably high. The boats have been detailed and are ready for you to buzz them out to the deepest parts of the lake in search for that big ol’ trout. Stop by the Convict Lake general store and fill up on snacks and goodies before your long day out on the water.
