Lake Sabrina Fish Report for 5-5-2021
Spring is in The Air!
Lake Sabrina - Bishop, CA (Inyo County)
by Lake Sabrina Boat Landing Staff
Spring is in the air and Mother Nature is showing us just how fickle she can be! One day is snowy and blowy and down-right cold and the next 65 degrees and we’re thinking it’s the middle of summer and then we go back to snowy and blowy and you know the rest.
Still lots of people braving those chilly conditions and still catching plenty of fish. NightCrawlers, PowerBait and Mini-Jigs were the hot ticket this week, but don’t forget the red and gold Thomas Buoyant and MiceTails. Chris Howard kept just enough for dinner – catching two Rainbows using a MoueTail. Craig Heidepriem had a few more to feed and landed a limit using NightCrawlers. Then there were those making memories. Josh and Judah (4) Sagiao and Roman and Luke (6) Solis almost made it to DiggleBerry Inlet. Asked Luke if he enjoyed fishing – his comment was ‘Fising is better than going to McDonald’s!’ I think we may have a new angler.
Sounds like we’ll get a monthly stocking from Department of Fish and WildLife and don’t forget, once the Sabrina and South Lakes have come up a bit, we’ll get the stockings from Idaho and Oregon going.
The Bald Eagles are back – yup, two of them and they’re doing a lot of sitting in the nest, so maybe soon we’ll have little babies!!
Currently, private boats can launch from dirt. No parking down in the Lake bottom.
The North Lake road is open – not yet sure about the campground, but it will be a dry campground (no potable water) when it does open. Road Crews are working to get the South Lake Road open – hopefully, this week! As the weather is a little wishy-washy, Sabrina Campground and Willow Campground will remain closed until temperatures stabilize a bit so the water pipes don’t freeze. BitterBrush, Big Trees and Four Jeffrey Campgrounds are currently open. The Forks, Intake 2 and Bishop Park are still waiting for the blessings of Inyo County Health on water. Just an FYI – the bears are waking up and there’s a BIG one roaming thru Aspendell knocking over the big green trash bins and prying the lids open – please store your food properly and DON’T feed the bears or the deer.
Haven’t heard an update on the trail with the weather we have had, I think the same conditions remain so here’s the report again. For those that would like to do a bit of hiking – the Sabrina Basin Trail leading up towards Blue Lake was very snowy and icy after the George Creek crossing. Temps are going to start warming up towards the end of the week – probably means a bit of post-holing after the George Creek crossing. Please be careful out there and leave an itinerary of where you’re heading, what you’re wearing and about what time you intend on returning to your ride in your ride.
It’s looking like it’s going to be a bit breezy all week or at least till Friday – let’s hope they’ll blow themselves right out of the Sierra. You can check the forecast yourself at www.weather.gov – enter Aspendell, CA and scroll down a bit for the temps and forecast up our way.
