Lake Sabrina Fish Report

Lake Sabrina - Bishop, CA (Inyo County)

by Lake Sabrina Boat Landing Staff

A bit of wildlife at the Lake this week - had the bald eagles at the back of the Lake. Sunday, a great blue heron flew in and landed on what is normally the island (nope didn't get a picture). And a bigger bear has discovered Lake Sabrina - it's visited twice this week, but has not yet tried to get in the building (that we know of) - this one discovered the back freezer.

Fishing was GREAT this week - thanks to DFW for the fish Thursday! At the Inlets, the anglers used Jigs and NightCrawlers - not much with PowerBait this week. Those that were trolling caught their fish pulling a lure or a NightCrawler. NightCrawlers were used by those just drifting thru the channels and it was PowerBait and NightCrawlers for those fishing from shore. If you're cruising down to the DingleBerry Inlet and it's packed - mind your manners - head on over to the George Inlet (left side about 200 yards from the back). There are fish all over this Lake - you might just discover a new hole or a new view!

Had Boy Scout Troop 915 from Westchester on the Lake this weekend and they earned their catching badge - showing them the finer points of fishing, Jim Vergschneider landed a 2lbs, 2-1/4lbs & 2-1/2lbs using a Trout Trap with a NightCrawler teaser as did Ernie Bucher nabbing a 2-1/4lbs, 3lbs, & 3-1/2lbs using NightCrawlers. Jonathon Jardin caught on fast catching a few fish as did Patrick Buckley landing a 2 pounder on NightCrawlers and Anthony Reznick, also, catching a 2 pounder on a Mini-Jig.

Local Bishop resident, Lynn Speakman knew the secret, reeling in a 3-3/4 pound Rainbow on PowerBait. Kaitlyn Whitehead (7yrs) provided dinner for the family with a 2-1/2 pounder (on a Trout Trap with a MealWorm) along with 3 more fish - she was the only one doing the catching. And Kaya (5yrs) and Tim (4yrs) when asked how they caught their first limits at Lake Sabrina, Tim responded "from a boat" along with Dad Roy and 'Uncle' Danny using Rainbow & Orange PowerBait. Jaylene (10yrs) Davenport learned quickly from sister Danielle (11yrs) on her first fishing trip to Lake Sabrina.

Warm temps are expected to return to the area - had a temp of 47 Sunday during a few unexpected thunderstorms Sunday. Even though RAIN SHOWERS aren't in the forecast during the week, they're back in the forecast for the weekend - don't forget your PONCHOS & a JACKET. Temps are expected to be in the high 70s with the lows in the high 40s - DON'T FORGET YOUR JACKETS (can't say this enough)! 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.

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...... Read More

What a weekend - folks all over enjoying the Lake, keeping cool and making memories - even had a few sprinkles. Hope if you made it up - you had a great time.
