Crowley Lake Fish Report

Crowley Lake - Mammoth Lakes, CA (Mono County)

by Tom Loe

The Drifters "fish magnets" have been stowed for the winter, however if you still want to tube or cast from the shoreline for a fall trophy, Crowley remains open until Nov. 15thand we do have guides available. The Owens mouth in the North Arm and the Six Bays area have good numbers of recently planted small fish with a few nice ones mixed in. Streamer fishing is best using larger Punk Perch patterns and Loebergs with a full or heavy sinking tip line.

The lake level is very low, and there is a bunch of mud along the north shoreline. Avoid getting close with your vehicle.

One of our \"Fish Magnet\" bay boats is now for sale. Doug-R has upgraded to a 24\' model and is selling his 2006 Ranger Bay Boat. This 20\' boat is equipped with a Yamaha 150 4-stroke outboard, Lowrance X-25c fish finder and GPS-2000, Motorguide trolling motor, Standard Horizon VHF radio, Bennett trim tabs, 3 batteries w/ 3-bank charger and voltmeter, Clarion stereo w/ Bose 6\" speakers (w/ipod interface), live well, (2) claw anchors, (3) Willie gunwale mounted fly rod holders, (2) Ranger adjustable swivel seats, console cover and 3 seat covers, Ranger Trail 2 axle trailer and full boat and engine weather cover.
