Free Fishing Day 9/1/18

Lake Sabrina - Bishop, CA (Inyo County)

by Rick, Patti, Juanita and Jerrod

The days are getting shorter, the Lake’s starting to drop, it’s a bit cooler during the night, the skeeters are long gone, the kids are back in school and there’s yellow starting to show over in Jack’s Bay across from the Café – I do declare Fall is just around the corner.
The catching at the Lake is still on the slow side – temps during the day are in the low to mid 70s and that just makes the water warm – trout like it cool. And now we have a full moon thrown into the mix. Like I said last week and the week before, the Inlets are still your best bet (as there’s cool water coming in and it’s bringing in food). NightCrawlers are still your best bet with Salmon Eggs and PowerBait close behind.  Dwayne and Jamin’s Tasmanian Devils are still working for them – we’ve got them in stock and don’t forget the Red and Gold Thomas Buoyants.
Gary Rainwater’s granddaughter Olivia caught a nice 1-3/4 pound Rainbow – when asked what she caught it on, she said, ‘Well, I caught it on a boat’. Love the kids answers!

A bit on the breezy side thru Wednesday night, but temps are still forecast to be in the low 70s or upper 60s for highs and the lows in the upper 30s (yup, you read that right) to low 40s. No ThunderBoomers in the forecast at least thru next week. You can check out the forecast for the week at (enter Aspendell, CA in the search and scroll down to see the temps).
Fishing etiquette is once again becoming a bit of a problem at the Lake and we don’t like problems. If you come upon someone fishing, please don’t fish right next to them – take a bit of hike farther down and don’t cast over into their spot. Same at the Inlet, there are so many areas to fish on this Lake go find another ‘soon to be’ favorite spot.
People, sure would be nice if y’all would pick up your trash when you leave. It’s really not that hard. Just sayin! If you need something to put it in, come into the store and we’ll give you a bag.
And the hiking conditions:
If you’re hiking stay safe out there. Remember to leave a note about your destination and approximate return time and a clothing description. And please hike with a buddy!
Things to do when you’re not at the Lake:
All Aboard!
A visit to Laws Railroad Museum and Historical Village is always a treat, but come on a day the train is running and it'll be extra special!
Important stuff that just stays in the report for a bit:
PRIVATE BOATERS:  Please don’t overload your boats – it causes us great distress!!! USE YOUR NOGGIN!
Spoke to the local Department of Fish and WildLife Game Warden regarding fisherpeople needing to have their own stringers and up to five fish per stringer. His response is – “It is highly recommended, but not required, but everyone better be present if I’m checking”.
If you catch a big fish or a limit just to have your picture taken for the webpage and then try and give your fish away – we won’t post your picture, but then again we may post it as ‘WASTER OF A PERFECTLY GOOD FISH TO EAT’! Crimp down your barbs, take a picture on the boat and release it for another day.
When using the bug juice or hand sanitizer or sunscreen or lotion or cologne or perfume, try not to get it on your hands – you’ll transfer it to your bait and the fish just don’t like any of that foo-foo stuff. Wash your hands in the stream or Lake to get it off, and then use some fish attractant on your hands.
