This is one of the most overlooked and underrated fishing spots in the Eastern Sierra. Located two 2 miles south of Lone Pine of US 395 this small only 86-acres lake offers some of the best rainbow trout fishing during the early spring. You also can catch catfish and bass. This past year I caught a 6-pound 13-ounce largemouth bass near the reeds at the northwest corner of the lake. Most trout fishermen use a ball of cheese bait on a treble hook when fishing for the rainbows. Salmon eggs are also a very good choice. Trolling in the center of the lake has produced some large trout. The Department of Fish and Game stocks the lake weekly often with some of their brood stock which can be in the 4 to 7 pound range. Trout in the 12-inch or large range are stocked from late winter through April. Tim Alpers also is contracted at times to stock the lake with his monster trout. One of the best shore fishing locations is just off the tent-area parking lot. Trollers find the most success around the boat launch. Campsites are located on the west short of the lake and there are no hookups. Small boats are required; Boats over 20 feet long are prohibited. There also is a boat speed limit enforced with a 35 mph speed limit from May through October and 15 mph from November through May 14. You will need to pay to launch your boat.
