There are some nice locations on Bishop Creek just south of the Lake Sabrina Dam. Lake Sabrina is just 10 min up the road from South Lake.
There are day hike lakes everywhere that you can have the water all to yourself. I seek out the solitude areas when I go up there.
Get yourself a backpackers map of the area.

Good luck to ya! :wink:

Do like T/O said... Find Jared.. If you can't then the guys working the South Lake landing can point you in the right direction.

For the creek, I fished what they call "Parcher's hole" and did alright. Its located right where the entrance to Parcher's resort, where the creek runs under the road and dumps out..

Just before you get up to the resort you will pass a pond (Weir pond) on the road to South Lake (it is not marked but trust me, you can't miss it). You won't find much in terms of size in there but I have fished there at least once a month since the season opened and there have been very few casts that I didn't land a fish. It would be a good spot to take your buddies and get them comfortable with the gear/techniques etc.

Tight lines,

I disagree about Wier not having big fish. You just have to know where to go in order to find them. :lol: That is one of my favorite spots to fish in all the Sierras.

As far as South Lake goes, try the "rock slide" area on bait or the troll. That should produce for you.

Yeah that is exactly where the guy at the landing told us to fish so we anchored up there and caught plenty of fish.

Good question, the lake is so low right now the entire shoreline looks like a rock slide area!!! But, I believe they are refering to the area straight down from the upper (overnight) parking lot. But, if you are up for the walk, go to the inlet at the back of the lake as the others suggested as this is one of the best spots in the canyon to fish.

As for the pond, you will drive right past it on your way up to the lake, you can't miss it. It is no more than 1/4mi. from the resort.
