Fishing at Bishop Creek Canyon, Eastern Sierra, CA

Thinking of a vacation? Looking for some cheap airline tickets to get-away from the recent hustle and bustle of a busy work life? Let me share with you one of my favorite places for a very relaxing vacation, the EASTERN SIERRA, CALIFORNIA.
Shore and Float Tube Fishing at North Lake, Bishop Creek Canyon, Eastern Sierra, CA
The Eastern Sierra of California is home to awe-inspiring contrasts and diversities. It offers several interesting geological formation and stunning scenery.

Because of its geographical diversity, Eastern Sierra is also the playground for many types of outdoor enthusiasts. The place is popular for hiking, mountain biking, skiing, snowboarding and fishing. Some people combine their backpacking trip with fishing because of the many rivers, streams and lakes that abound in the area.

One of the favorite fishing spots in the Eastern Sierra is the Bishop Creek Canyon. It offers some of the most spectacular fishing experiences in the Eastern Sierra.
Lake Sabrina at Bishop Creek Canyon
The Bishop Creek Canyon has five lakes and 20 miles of stream offering plenty of angling options. The lakes have magnificent views of the rugged peaks of the Sierra Nevada Mountains where fishing boats are dwarfed by these mountain peaks just like in the picture below.

There are well maintained tackle shops at both the South Lake and Lake Sabrina. The fishing season starts April, and ends November. People could fish either on shore or by taking the boat out to some of the best spots for fishing that are accessible by boat only.

The crystal clear water in the lakes are teeming with fish such as rainbow, brook and brown trout. 
Trouts ( sorry, I do not know what type) Caught at North Lake, Bishop Creek Canyon
The trouts above were caught from fishing on shore of North Lake. I am sure, those who take their boats out searching for best angling opportunities get better chances in catching bigger trouts. In South Lake, the record caught was a brown trout weighing 17 lbs and 1 oz. Many have reported on seeing fish about that big in South Lake. It is just a matter of time for the record to be broken. The lucky one could share his prized fishing pictures to all the other fishing enthusiasts and the rest of the world. Through fishing e-groups and social networks, it is now easier for fishing enthusiasts to inspire one another. Aside from sharing pictures, they could also get fishing information and angling tips from each other.

Their pictures may inspire others to also experience the place. A lot of people who went to Bishop Creek Canyon for fishing, hiking, backpacking or simply nature exploring most of the time were inspired first by the beautiful contrasts in Bishop Creek Canyon through pictures. I am one of those people who came to see Bishop Creek Canyon after seeing inspiring pictures from this place. All thanks to the internet and some social media, it is now easier for me to travel and see inspiring experiences from others. Maybe, one of these days, I would be able to see fishing pictures of one of my friends holding their prize catch that breaks the record of fish caught at Bishop Creek Canyon.
