Title: Lake Sabrina, North Lake, South Lake or Rock Creek Lake Kayak Fishing
Post by: Angler_yak on August 17, 2015, 06:23:24 PM
Hello everyone, I'm new to this board and I love fishing the eastern Sierras. I'm looking to escape the heat this weekend and get some peace and serenity on a lake. I will be kayak fishing so ease of unloading my kayak in the water is also a plus. Which lake would you recommend for a kayak fisherman amongst the lakes I mentioned?

Also, what baits are working the best lately?

Welcome ...yak!

My vote is for RCL, for a lot of different reasons. Enjoy the sunrise from your kayak and some pie afterwards.

Thanks for dropping in and hope you have a great trip.

Thanks for the replies guys. I love in Ridgecrest so I'm just a little over two hours drive south and I love fishing in the mountains just to escape our summer heat. I thoroughly enjoy fishing from my kayak which makes the eastern Sierras that much better due to the low speed zones. Sometimes I tend to paddle on the lake and not catch a thing but the peace and picturesque views make up for the lack of fish for the day.

We spent a week camping on Lake Mary about three weeks ago in Mammoth and I was able to enjoy some time kayak fishing but the lake was too crowded most of the time so I want somewhere with less people this time. I've fished Convict And Crowley Lakes the past couple years of which I have to say I enjoy Convict Lake the best due to being surrounded by the beautiful mountains and it is cooler than Crowley.

I just heard a coworker talking about Rock Creek Lake last week so I was thinking of trying it out. I've been talking about hitting up Sabrina this summer as well but haven't had a lot of time to get up there but hopefully before the fishing season ends I can get out on a couple more of these lakes.

What is the best bait being used at RCL recently?

We use inflatable kayaks a lot on RCL. Had some luck trolling but best anchored just out of reach of those casting 10 lb weights from shore. Wet flies or lures.
