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!

We've got boats for rent and YES you can get to the DingleBerry Inlet!

We do hope you all had a GREAT 4th - we sure did! Boats, people, and a few big fish all around the Lake this weekend and we can't forget the bear that showed up Monday afternoon at 3:30 on the dam - yup, just walked right up the back of the dam on the trail. He then promptly walked down the launch ramp around to the grassy area and up to the gut can - he then proceeded over to the back freezer and opened it right up - just like you or I would - got a good picture of him out the kitchen window.

Fishing this week was terrific - some nice size fish showed up in pictures. Jeff Kraus, pictured above of Costa Mesa landed a 3-1/2 pounder on a pink PowerWorm. Marla Comins, Photo #1 up from Southern California finally got her big fish - a 3-pound Alper caught on a NightCrawler! Erick Ochoa (7 years old), Photo #2 of Oxnard caught his first limit on Lake Sabrina with the help of his grandfather John Garlinger. Local John Tisler, Photo #3 of Bishop pulled in a 2-1/2 pound Alper on yellow PowerBait. My daughter Sara Curry and friend Ellyse Lopez, Photo #4 caught just enough for dinner!

NightCrawlers and Salmon Eggs were on the menu at the DingleBerry Inlet (back right-hand side) while PowerBait and NightCrawlers were getting them from shore. Trolling lead core and a needlefish at 5 colors or just dragging a NightCrawler close to shore. DFG put in another load on Monday.

A massive amount of cement was on this week's agenda for the Bridge - it was scheduled to be delivered in 13 cement trucks on Wednesday, but alas, the pump truck broke down in Lee Vining, another pump truck was dispatched from Sacramento at 4:45am to arrive at 10am finally arrived about 3pm. The cement trucks arrived on Friday! They're gittin-r-done!

Had a few thunderboomers along with some sprinkles over the past week. This week's temps are expected to be in the mid-50s for the lows and in the mid-70s for the highs. Best pack a poncho just in case the monsoonal weather returns. 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!

Got the picture of the purple penstemons along with a pink penstemons which we think are a cross between a red firecracker and purple penstemons. Also, pictures is a Golden-mantled ground squirrel (at least that what we think it is).

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.

IF YOU'RE TAKING A BOAT TO THE BACK OF THE LAKE AND PLAN ON GETTING OUT or HIKING INTO THE BACK COUNTRY - DON'T FORGET THE BUG JUICE - THEY ARE HORRID - 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!
