Lake Sabrina Fish Report

Lake Sabrina - Bishop, CA (Inyo County)

by Lake Sabrina Boat Landing Staff

Lots of visitors cooling off at the Lake this weekend - and cool it was - highs in the upper 70's with a cool breeze coming off the Lake - yup, it was downright gorgeous and cool. Saturday, July 5th is FREE FISHING DAY! Don't need a license on that day to fish, but you do need to abide by all the fishing regulations. If you're not sure what they are, come on in and ask!

Catching is off the charts - loads of full stringers coming out and reports of oodles of fish being caught and released. NightCrawlers and PowerBait are on the menu at the Inlets - the DingleBerry Inlet in the back right-hand corner, the Little George Inlet in the back left-hand corner and the George Inlet about 200 yard toward the dam - oh, did I mention how cool it is? If you're trolling, give lures with a bit of red a try or just try dragging a NightCrawler. Sitting in a boat and still-fishing, try the coves with PowerBait or Salmon Eggs or drifting in the channels with NightCrawlers. Kicking back on shore and enjoying the cool weather, just about any bait is working there.

Daniel McGrew along with Dan (Dad) of Ojai landed a nice 2-1/2 pound Rainbow on PowerBait while Julio Hurtado along with sons Julio Jr and Joshua of Riverside caught dinner using Salmon-Peach PowerBait. Sean Bozigian of Palmdale nabbed a 2-3/4 pound beaut using a Green Jig (picture to follow once I find the right camera cord). Cheryl Iwata and Ryan Iseri limited out in about 4-1/2 hours using Rainbow and Chartreuse PowerBait over near the spillway. Bo Pisarchuk, John May, Dwight Swearingen and Dustin Paladino of SoCal had some good times hooking into quite a few fish with lures and PowerBait. And it was the 11th Table Mountain Annual Fishing Invitational - the winner for the fourth time was Carlee Barnes snagging a 2-pounder with a NightCrawler.

There's red PaintBrush and Purple Iris dotting the landscape at the Lake these days - expecting the Gloriosa daisies and the wild roses to be popping out any day now.

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!

Temps are expected to be in the 80 °s for highs (that's pretty darn warm for us) and in the high-40 °s to low 50 °s for lows with a slight chance of thunderboomers. 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, so 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!

One other important item - bug juice, hand sanitizer, sunscreen, cologne, perfume, or any other foo-foo juice is like a fish repellent - if you use any of these items you're basically using fish repellant - you'll need to wash your hands, then apply Bite-On fish attractant or rub your hands in worm dirt or pour some Salmon Egg juice on your hands - anything to get the foo-foo stink off your hands.
