Fishing in Mammoth Lakes

Fishing in Mammoth Lakes

With access to an abundance of high alpine lakes, reservoirs, streams and creeks, Mammoth Lakes offers some of the best trout fishing in the world. Monster rainbows, wise old browns, feisty brookies and elusive native golden trout—whether you prefer bait-setting from a folding chair on a sunny beach with a view, trolling from a boat, nymphing from a float-tube in the middle of a quiet pond or casting barbless midges from a grassy bank on a quiet oxbow, you’ll find plenty of places to try your hand at outsmarting a fish—or several!

This season, fishing regulations in California have been adjusted. Find out more about how these new regulations affect your favorite places to fish in the Mammoth Lakes area.
