Crowley Lake Fish Report

Crowley Lake - Mammoth Lakes, CA (Mono County)

by Tom Loe

The marina will close on 10-31, however the lake remains open for tubing or shore fishing until 11-15. It has been very slow this fall despite some really nice weather lately. As is the case with many other California still waters, the lake level is alarmingly low. We need a big winter for sure.

Layton Springs and Six Bays are the most consistent for the few larger fish showing up. The dinks have been planted and you may get into these rascals especially around Hilton or Crooked Creek. There is still chironomid activity mid-day (tigers and gillies #18-20) for still water nymphers, but the streamer fishing will more frequently get you into the larger models with a full or heavy sinking tip line. Loebergs, Punk Perch, Agent Orange #10-12.
