Fishing has been good to great at Lake Sabrina, but the lake is getting lower

Lake Sabrina - Bishop, CA (Inyo County)

by Lake Sabrina Boat Landing Staff

Well, we've got a bit of good news and a bit of bad news. We'll start with the bit of bad news - the Lake is starting to go down - about 2 inches a day right now. The good news - fishing has been good for most and great for others! Also, had sightings of two bald eagles at the back of the Lake. And NO new sightings of any bears.

Fishing the DingleBerry Inlet with NightCrawlers, PowerBait, or Jigs. Trolling leadcore at 5 colors or in the shallows with a NightCrawlers or in the channels with a NightCrawler. Shore fishing with NightCrawlers or PowerBait. Got a good load of stockers from the Department of Fish and Game last Thursday. They'll keep stocking as long as they can get to the water.

Some of the great fishing memories this week were Preston Torres, pictured above of Moreno Valley with a 3-1/4 lb. trout caught on a gold KastMaster - his friend Pablo Hernandez, Photo #1 of Yucca Valley landed a nice 2-1/2 pounder on a RoosterTail. Birthday memories for Shawn Kekilian, JR catching a nice rainbow with Dad Shawn and sister Ella, Photo #2 on his special day. Local Bishop resident Richard Burnach, Photo #3 caught not one, but two NATURALS (meaning they were born and grew up in this Lake) on MiniJigs and Plastic Worms - one weighed in at 4-1/2lbs the other at 3-3/4lbs - he had caught and released a bigger one last week - way to go!

Another massive amount of cement is on this week's agenda for the Bridge - this is the actually road bed. The completion date for the bridge is the end of September.

This week's temps are expected to be in the mid-40's for the lows and in the upper-70's for the highs. Best pack a poncho just in case the monsoonal weather returns - slight chance for this coming weekend. 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 at Also, check out NOAA's Facebook page - US National Weather Service Las Vegas Nevada - the Lake was pictured in one of their posting!

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!
