Lake Sabrina - Bishop, CA (Inyo County)

by Lake Sabrina Boat Landing Staff

Don't forget to pick up your license before hitting the Lake.

Watch out for the Deer - they are on the move!

Well, we didn't get the 5-feet of snow in the backcountry we hoped for - but we did get some much cooler temperatures last Monday - down to 46 with the wind chill - sure felt good - but then we were back up in to the mid to high 80s for the weekend with a couple of thunderboomers thrown in for good measure. All in all - it was a great week at the Lake which rose by about 5 inches - we'll take what we can get - but that snow pack is looking pretty darn sparse.

The bear is on the prowl for some good grub! Hit us up again - his menu now is ice cuz that's all we're storing in the freezer. He's still roaming the campgrounds and the resorts from here to Bishop Creek Lodge - So if you're camping in the area - practice the safe bear rules! Dorsey Hogue-Johnston caught the eagle at the back of the Lake looking for dinner - boy, did she get some nice pictures.

Catching this week is still a bit spotty - find the spot though and you can do great. Fishing the DingleBerry Inlet (back right-hand side) with NightCrawlers, Salmon Eggs, Garlic PowerBait (color doesn't matter) or jigs. Trolling lead core at 3-5 colors or just dragging a NightCrawler in the channels. If your fishing from shore, take a bit of a walk and find deeper water then use either NightCrawler or PowerBait. DFG put in another load on Wednesday.

Had a couple of nice fish caught this week - Wayne Martin, Photo #1 of San Bernardino landed a 4-pound beaut on a gold spoon, while 4 year old Ethan Roland Hernandez, pictured above of Glendora showed the adults how it's done bring in a 4-1/4 pounder on a Mini Jig - all by hisself!

Don't forget the Bishop Volunteer Fire Department 4th of July Fireworks extravaganza at the Bishop Airport - support one of the many groups selling fireworks in Bishop and for $10 per carload, you can BBQ, then shoot off your own fireworks while watching everyone else shoot off their fireworks, then sit back and watch the show - it's an AWESOME block party!

Attended Bishop Creek Lodge's 4th Annual Luau on Saturday, June 29th - what an awesome job they did as usual - Thanks to Gary & Susie, Tina & Derick, Sammy and all the rest of the BCL crew and also Jim for bringing all the fruit - they do know how to throw a party! A GREAT time was had by all. Sure hope we see you all there next year for the 5th Annual Luau.

Massive amounts of steel were on the agenda for the Bridge this week - good thing the workers were up in the 'cool' temps of the mountains!

We have a chance of more thunder-boomers in the forecast (so don't forget the fly for the tent and rain gear for yourselves) with cooler temperatures toward the 4th of July weekend. We'll have highs in the low 80's and those temps are forecast to drop by 10 degrees to the low 70s by Sunday. Lows this week are in the mid-50s. You can check NOAA's website at and enter ASPENDELL, CA on the site and it will give you a fairly good hint at the weather up at the Lake or check in with Howard Also, check out NOAA's Facebook page - US National Weather Service Las Vegas Nevada - the Lake was pictured in one of their posting!

Wanted to say "Thanks" to Len and Ginny for planting the flowers that so artfully decorate the deck - sure looks pretty!

Speaking of flowers, we've got some striking purple iris along with pink wild roses and some reddish-orange firecrackers - there's also a lot of yellow flower and white flowers that I have no idea of their names and we can't forget the purple penstemons (which I did forget to take a picture of).

We are now open Sunday thru Saturday from 7:00am to 7:00pm - we serve Breakfast from 7:00am to 11:00am and Lunch from 11:00am to 4:00pm - Homemade Pie and Vanilla Ice Cream from 7:00am to 6:45pm.

Thought we only had the normal size skeeters now, but every once in a while an enormous skeeter is seen lurking - so don't forget the juice - Remember when using the bug juice and SANITIZER you need to really wash your hands before fishing - then rub some Salmon Egg juice, worm dirt or Anglers Bros Trout attractant to take that smell off. Also, remember your polarized dark glasses and sunscreen.

And, of course, we'll have HOMEMADE pie & ice cream, sodas, beer, wine, coffee, tea and hot cocoa!

Juanita, Rick, Patti, Bryan, Ginny & Tommy
