Lake Sabrina Fish Report

Lake Sabrina - Bishop, CA (Inyo County)

by Lake Sabrina Boat Landing Staff

And the Lake is touching the launch ramp - hard to believe - guess those thunderboomers rained oodles amounts of water in the backcountry - we're actually looking like a Lake - J!

Still lots of wildlife in the area - a bear's been roaming around us for the last 5 nights along with the occasional deer. Great Blue Heron flying over the Lake and the Eagles and Opsrey are still making appearances.

Catching was on the good side thru the weekend - come Monday, things slowed down quite a bit - Fishing the Inlets with NightCrawlers, PowerBait or Jigs. Lots of fish hanging around the rock piles dotting the Lake - try trolling around them or troll close to the shoreline. If you get tired of trolling and want to relax, try drifting thru the channels with NightCrawlers or Lures. From shore, try fishing with PowerBait.

Brothers Cooper, Carson and Chad Adams caught dinner for the crew using PowerBait - Good job boys! Laura Cacho landed a 2-1/4 pounder using a NightCrawler.

Can you believe Labor Day weekend is less than 2 weeks away - when not up at the Lake fishing, why not take in the Eastern Sierra Tri-County Fair starting August 28 - August 31, 2014. The Eastern Sierra Tri County Fair is a true country fair that shows off all that Inyo, Mono and Alpine Counties have to offer. They boast a wide array of hand and homemade exhibits for all tastes and interests, interesting commercial and educational exhibits and tons of free entertainment all for the price of admission. For the more adventurous there are main arena events including truck pulls, an ATV rodeo, traditional rodeo and the ever-popular destruction derby, not to mention a fantastic family friendly carnival! So check it out at

Welp, we've got a chance of thunderboomers back in the forecast for a bit, so don't forget your PONCHOS & a JACKET. Temps are expected to be in the mid 70s with the lows in the 50s - 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. 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.

It was another wildlife week at the Lake - a bear, deer, coyote, the bald eagle family, an osprey and plenty of people. And we can't forget the thunderboomers, lightning, rain and hail - yup, it was a wild one! Even the fishing was on the wild side - lots of limits coming out with many of those limits including trout well over the 2 pound mark. Just about anything you threw at them, they took. Of course the...... Read More

It was feeling more like Fall this week than Summer - temps in the 50s, cloudy, rainy and large pea-size hail, as our local weatherperson, Howard said, 'It seems Mother Nature may be trying to make up for last Winter'. Almost had Rick start a fire in the wood stove today - it's 53 at Noon and 66 in the building - sure doesn't feel like August - J! Well, the Lake hadn't hit the high point for the year,......
