Lake Sabrina Fish Report

Lake Sabrina - Bishop, CA (Inyo County)

by Lake Sabrina Boat Landing Staff

The rental boats moved up to the front and the lifejacket and cushion trailer moved down by the boats. The road to the back natural lake is almost under water - what does this all mean - THE LAKE IS ON THE RISE - it's come up about 4 feet from last weekend - woo-hoo and it was a week without snow, a bit breezy, but all in all a great week at the Lake.

Catching this week was hit or miss - if you found the fish - it was fish after fish after fish - if you didn't well the hot spots seemed to be the DingleBerry Inlet using NightCrawlers, PowerBait, Jigs & Thomas Buoyants or by the dam using PowerBait and lures. Trolling is still on the slow side, but you might try NightCrawlers or Thomas Buoyants - had a number of private boats go in this week. We got fish last Wednesday and the DFW will continue to stock the Lake weekly!

The next big event is the California High School State Rodeo June 10th thru June 13th - check out the Bishop Chamber of Commerce website for more information. You will not be disappointed in meeting these kids - come on up and support them!

If your 4th of July plans included Bishop - the Bishop Volunteer Fire Department's Annual Firework Show will begin at 9pm just after dark at the Bishop Airport. Gates open at 4pm. $20 per car load. Food and Beverage Venders will be on site. For more information on this event Please call (760) 873-5485. Donations can be made to the Bishop Volunteer Fire Dept and would be greatly appreciated!

No sign of bears up at Lake Sabrina yet - but they have been spotted in town, yup, in our little town of Bishop, so where ever you are please keep your food and trash picked-up or they may visit you next.

We may have a chance for a few thunderboomers during the week - so best pack a poncho. Temps are expected to be in the mid to high 60's and in the low 40s. You can also check out - enter Aspendell, CA (which is the little community right below Lake Sabrina) in the search field and you'll get the forecast for the higher elevation or take a look at Howard Sheckter, our local weather 'guesser' report at

And the SKEETERS are back - the Godzilla-size skeeters - big enough to carry away your first-born - DON'T FORGET THE BUG JUICE and the sunscreen, ponchos and dark polarized glasses - the glare off the water is tough on the eyes. And if you have allergies - PACK YOU MEDS - it's tough breathing out there for some - what with runny noses, stuffed noses & watery eyes - believe us - we know!

Another fun week by Mother Nature - what a week it was - snow flurries for 4 days (almost another inch of moisture) - then the cool temps and cloudy skies gave way to warm temps with fluffy white clouds and the bluest of blue skies at the Lake - plenty of families spent the weekend pulling out limits and making or reliving memories. Shore or still fishing (remember we have boats for rent) were the way to go whether...... Read More

With the cooler temps last week, the amount of water from the snow run-off shut down dramatically, so much so that the Lake level dropped a few inches causing those that got a bit too close to the Lake to break out their shovels. The good news is that we had a few warm days and the Lake gained back what it lost and a bit more. We just need a few more feet to get our boats up front...... Read More
