Lake Sabrina Fish Report

Lake Sabrina - Bishop, CA (Inyo County)

by Lake Sabrina Boat Landing Staff

Oh, what a week it 'twas - some thunderboomers and a few sprinkles here and there. There was also nice and cool temps with a slight breeze - who could ask for anything more? How 'bout spotting a couple of bald eagles hanging at the back of the Lake?

Fishing was still great, but the catching part slowed a bit going into the weekend. Could it have been the supermoon? Don't have a clue, but it's a thought. If you're coming on up, fish the inlets with NightCrawlers, Jigs or PowerBait. If trolling, try dragging Thomas Buoyants, NightCrawlers, or WoolyBoogers. Drifting? Hit the channels with NightCrawlers or PowerBait and enjoy the peace and quiet. Lastly, if you're shore fishing, appreciate the day from shore using PowerBait, NightCrawlers, or Lures. Thanks again to the DFG for the fish!

Had some 'first fish' caught by some youngsters. Twins Chris and Sam Nalick, with help from Dad Tim, both reeled in a nice first fish (yup - the same fish), Jackson Musser, age 2-1/2, pulled in his first fish showing Mom & Dad how it's done, and Elizabeth Estremadura, age 6, landed a beaut for her first.

And on to the bigger fish - Julie Neson showed husband Gary how to land that 2-pounder on a NightCrawler, and Morgan Hobbs, using PowerBait, made Dad Shane proud, pulling in a 2-pounder. Brent Stinchcomb nabbed a 2-1/2 pounder using a tried and true SuperDuper. Preston Torres caught a 3-1/4 pound beaut on a PowerWorm-PowerBait combo. Bob Rodenas cheered on friend, David Dietz, who caught a 3/4-pounder.

Boo-Boo the bear made a return visit last week - luckily, he hasn't discovered the freezer or the window... yet. He's just gotten into the gut can and recyclables.

Thunderboomers are in the forecast for the week along with fairly warm temps for our elevation. Expecting RAIN SHOWERS thru the week - don't forget your PONCHOS. Temps are expected to be in the high 70s with the lows in the low 50s - DON'T FORGET YOUR JACKETS! 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. Also remember the sunscreen, ponchos and dark polarized glasses. The glare off the water is tough on the eyes. And if you have allergies - PACK YOUR 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, and will 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.
