Mammoth Lake Basin Fish Report

Mammoth Lakes - (Mono County)

by Tom Loe

Most of the lakes in the Mammoth area have been decent pulling streamers from a float tube or boat on a medium to heavy sinking line. Around 500lbs. of trophy Alpers Trout (averaging 3 to 5lbs.) are scheduled to go into the lakes this week and they\'re just itching to wrap their slimy lips around a tasty streamer. Hanging a dropper like a hare\'s ear, PT, or midge about 12-14 off your streamer is not a bad idea either. Fish the drop offs, inlets, and log structures for best results.
