Be sure to visit the CDFW web site for complete regulations before heading out.

Comments and Tips:

    Its a very nice looking creek, the fire storms destoryed the forest and when the El Nino winter of 04-05 and 05-06 totally washed out the creek and now it just a bathing and swimming spot for the kooks and creeps. Don't bother taking the drive, your car might get stollen. If you are a person who enjoys the shooting aports, the is an excellent shooting range at the end of the road (past the gate and old firing line, about 4 miles outside of town). Its fairly cheap to go up there for some all day fun!

    Lytle Creek is fishable year round depending on weather and flow conditions. Before the firestorms that hit the area there was a substantial population of native rainbow trout in the stream.
