Round Up at the Lake Fishing Derby

Convict Lake, CA

Venue: Convict Lake

Phone: 760-934-3800

Convict Lake fishing is arguably some of the best in the West and one of the most popular fishing “holes” in the Eastern Sierra, boasting a fantastic stock of Rainbow and German Brown trout. The pristine lake is 168 acres and ringed with towering mountain peaks. Situated in a bowl at 7,580 feet, Convict Lake was developed by a moraine dam created from retreating glaciers.

Crowley Lake is a California Department of Fish & Wildlife fishing license outlet and the lake is stocked weekly by the Department of Fish & Wildlife. Convict Lake Resort also provides supplemental stocking of Rainbow Trout throughout the season.
