Lake Sabrina Fish Report

Lake Sabrina - Bishop, CA (Inyo County)

by Lake Sabrina Boat Landing Staff

We've got a family of Bald Eagles at the Lake - two adults and a juvenile - so cool to watch the youngster circling the Lake for fish and watch the other two fly behind - such a very majestic sight - also, had another sighting of an Osprey.

We think the Lake has hit the high point for the year and the run-off is over - got up higher than we ever imagined this year. We sure are hoping for a snow-filled winter this year - might need to start dancing now!

Catching this week started out halfway decent, but slowed a bit over the weekend. Fishing the Inlet's with Salmon Eggs, NightCrawlers & Jigs. Trolling Thomas Buoyants or NightCrawlers (don't forget the swivel or you'll be hating life). Drifting the channels with NightCrawlers. Shore fishing with PowerBait or Lures. Please mind your manners - if the Inlets are crowded, try fishing the numerous springs feeding into the Lake - stop on in and we'll point you in the right direction.

Thanks to the DFG for the stocking on Friday - we're sure the following anglers appreciated it also - Jeff & Marianne Krpan used Salmon Eggs and the Red & Gold Thomas Buoyants to land a 1-1/2 - and a couple of 2 pounders. JT Abdella caught a nice 3-1/4 lunker on PowerBait. Ella Kekelian, along with Shawn Sr & Shawn Jr, celebrated her 9th birthday out on the Lake while James Tomplins, Donnie Trout, Rob Rick & Bobby Thornosk caught enough for a GREAT fish fry using NightCrawlers and PowerWorms. Father and Son team, Tim Sr & Tim Jr, made the family proud Senior landing a 2-1/2 pounder besting Junior by a quarter of a pound - both used mouse tails.

Hard to believe it's a cool 53 degrees at 2:45pm on Monday, July 28th - a bit overcast with intermittent rain and hail - awesome weather! ThunderBoomers are expected to remain with us at least thru next week so plan according - don't forget your PONCHOS & a JACKET. Temps are expected to be in the mid 70s with the lows in the mid 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

The skeeters are pretty much done at Lake Sabrina, but we're still hearing of pockets of them at North Lake and in the back country (they are our back country protectors) 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.

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...... Read More

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
