Want some ideas of were to fish?

Crowley Lake is a mecca for fishing here in the Eastern Sierra.  This body of water and it's midge population, careful planning and stocking allow for trophy trout fishing. Some of the best in the west. This video will show and tell you more about the fish and the midge of Crowley Lake.

This DWP Reservoir offers boating and shore fishing. If you have a SUV you can get to many, many miles of shore line from endless roads around the lake.  The map on our Crowley Web Page shows some of the routes.

Want more info?  Call the team that lives right on the lake at The Crowley Lake Fish Camp & Marina.

One thing you need to note is: Crowley will get blown out after lunch many a Summer days. So go for sunrise fishing, when the wind is down. From Opening Day 2008 through July 31 there is a Five Fish Limit with no size limitations. Aug.1 - Oct.31, it's two per day, 18" in length and only artificial lures with barbless hooks can be used.

The Mammoth Lakes Basin is located up the Lake Mary Road and contains a handful of lakes you can drive to.  This area is a prime use area for Family Fun. Everything from Shore Fishing to Boating, Camping, Biking, Walking and Day hiking to over a dozen lakes.

Drive to lakes are:  Lake George, Lake Mary, Twin Lakes, and Lake Mamie. Each of these bodies of waters if stocked often. We hooked up with Tim Alpers at Twin Lakes when he brought in a load of the fish he stocks in these lakes.  Check out that video and imagine yourself hooking into one of those beasts.  Now every time you cast you have a chance to catch not just a DFG stocker, but a monster Alpers. The entire Lakes Basins Stuffed with these fish.

The Basin is also home to two marinas and several national forest service campgrounds, and a general store. You can also get a cozy cabin at Tamarack Lodge or Crystal Crag Lodge.  Each Lake except George has boat rentals.  We are working on The Mammoth Lakes Basin Travel & Fishing Videos so you can see for yourself what to do in this area.

Mammoth Creek is sure to provide a great fishing excursion.  Make sure you check that the creek has been stocked.  This is a high traffic area and lots of city kids and locals love to fish here.  So if you want a playful setting get here early or head to The Lakes Basin.   Read here for a trip report from Mammoth Creek last summer.  They had Stocked Big Alpers just the day before! 

Parking is great for this creek that is right in the heart of Mammoth Lakes.  Best bet is to park at Mammoth Creek Park at the end of Old Mammoth Road.  There are also lots of benches and rest rooms in this area. 

The Upper Owens River is a epic place to fish and camp.  Just 3 miles north of Crowley Lake Drive you will see the Green Church.  Turn right and head out about 3 miles and you will see the river and browns towns camp ground.   Be careful regulations for fishing very all over the river.  The good news is if you slow down and ready the signs by the creek you will not get a ticket.   Summer 2007 this area saw the mother load of trout stocking.  Get here early this season as all those holdovers are going to be monsters.

Convict Lake & Creek is home to some monster trout.  This lake is surround by massive peaks that will make you break out the camera. The lake is a very deep body of water that can produce some monsters.  The creek will provide you with hours of fun fishing for stockers. This area is also up for our team to cover later this season.  Click here for the convict lake resort and marina web site. Want a bit of video from this area try here.

The June Lake Loop area is a great place for many day trips or a whole summer vacation of fishing fun.   The Eastern Sierra Bent Rods.com team will have a whole video guide & write ups on the June Lake Loop  later this summer. 

Mc Gee Creek
Mc Gee Creek is located just over 3 miles north of the Crowley Lake turn off. Look for a grove of aspens and a dirt parking area that can handle 30 cars or so.  This is a great place to fish, but your going to need a lot of time, food and water to due it right.  Read more on Mc Gee Creek and see a video right here.
