Eastern Sierra Fishing / Re: RCL Bait Fishing
« on: September 18, 2017, 11:36:57 AM »
Try powerbait or nightcrawlers for bait caster's.   Thomas Bouyants still the best for lures.   Fly/bubble combo, try Wooly Buggers or Matukas in olive is my go to setup.  Lot of large Rainbows coming out of Rock Creek Lake.   Caught several myself.

If you fish the creek, salmon eggs work good.  Creek flows are down and very fishable. Good fishing!   :fishing3:

Any specific color or scents on the powerbaits?
Thanks!

Headin up to Rock Creek Lake in a few weeks. I can always hold my own in the creek, but for the lazy morning bait 'n wait fishing at the lake I don't know what they're hitting on.
Cheese? Eggs? Powerbait? Gulp bait? Colors? Flavors? Etc.
Thanks all

Eastern Sierra Fishing / RCL Fishing Update?
« on: September 04, 2015, 12:04:09 PM »
I'm going to be up there in 2 weeks and was just wondering what folks are catching them on right now?  Iím usually pretty good at finding/catching them out of the creek, but Iíve found that the lake seems to be more hit or miss.
I donít flyfish so Iím looking for powerbaits, lures, and bubble/fly combos (and retrieval methods) that are working.  Hot lake locations would be appreciated as well.
Thanks!

Lol! No problem, was just curious.  Iím not going until late September so some crowds taper off by then anyway.  All the same I think I prefer RCL.

Not sure about intake 2 but I'm sure the levels are fine as they use it for power I think. Rock Creek Lake water levels should also be fine as its a natural drainage. I've been to RCL 3 times this season and all was good. I'd stay away from Bishop Canyon if I were you. But that's just me.

Good luck

Why would you stay away from Bishop Canyon?

Eastern Sierra Fishing / Water Levels

Does anyone know what the water levels are like around Intake II and Rock Creek Lake?
Both lower than normal?  Trying to plan a trip to one of those places and our party want to go wherever there is more water.
Thanks all!

Was up last Wednesday-Saturday evening.  Stayed a the walk-in sites.  Although our group was spread out amongst 3 separate sites because a larger than normal amount of people were staying in those sites.  Over all I think population was up for this time of year and my theory is the road construction.  Once people wait for 30-45 minutes to get through the road construction they are going to settle on whatever they find for a campground so that they donít have to wait again just to go back to the lower sites.  Same goes for the day trip folks, once they got up there they stayed for the day.

Anyway, the trip was still fantastic.  Cool weather and a bit windy at times, but very nice over all.  Creek was probably the lowest Iíve seen it above the lake.  I felt creek fishing above the lake was poor as a result, think I caught the only keep-able size Brookies out of there within the first hour of fishing.  After that I could get anything more than a few inches.  Still fun regardless!  The lake fishing was great though.  On Thursday and Friday a group 6 of us brought chairs, snacks, hookah, and inebriating liquid with us and had a blast.  I limited out the first day and caught a few more the following using everything from lures, Mice Tails, and powerbait.  Same for most members of our group.  People were accusing us of cleaning out the SW shoreline :clap:

Life at camp consisted of more inebriating liquids, brats, burgers, bacon, snacks, bocce ball, laughing, and fire.  Grand time amongst grand people and grand environment.  Perfect close to my Summer, already anxious for next years trip :twothumbs:

Is there a maximum occupancy per site?  Its never been an issue in the past, but we'll have as many as 12 people with us this year so, thought I'd inquire.
Thanks!

The walk in sites are at the lake, but there are also RV locations along the road at the lake.  Walk-ins are fairly secluded and Iíve never had issues getting a spot there mid-week. 

Not sure about the day fishing license.  I had friends that tried last year and were unable to obtain one, they had to drive all the way in to Mammoth Lakes for one.  Iíd recommend getting one ahead of time.  There is a store in Tomís Place as well as Rock Creek Lake Resort for minimal groceries. 

Enjoy, I'm heading up next Wednesday!

I'm with you.  I'm from Lancaster, CA. Our Summer starts in May and ends in November.  I go to Rock Creek to escape the heat for a bit.  Love needing a sweatshirt or jacket in what is my normal Summer months!
