At the start of the trail you cross the Bridge over the West Walker River.  This bridge was build only a few years ago.






This is the old bridge

My camp site is to the right at the picknick table.  That’s Brownie Creek.

This lake gets its name from the color of its water.  Only makes sense to have gorgeous fish in this beautiful lake.

I been hearing the “No Fish” theme more this year than usual.  I’ve been told its slow lately at Virginia Lakes, Tioga Pass, June Lake Loop, Convict Lake and Rock Creek Lake from fishing reports from the resorts.  By the way don’t bother fishing at “Saddlebag Lake” as they are not stocking it and draining it down due to a sinkhole found near the dam.  Bishop Creek is fishing great this season with lots of stockers and big one’s available to catch.  Back-country fishing has been epic all through the Eastern Sierra!

Fish or no fish, its always great to visit the Sierra

Welcome LMT44 to the Rock Creek’s Message Board!  I have to agree that back-country fishing can be epic, especially in Bishop Creek Canyon.  You may want to glance at my trip report I shared for that area for more fishing options, especially in the back-country.  It’s a fishing paradise!

As for catching a big alpine brown, there are several trip reports here for brown trout fishing.  So, check out the reports and pick your spot for fall fishing for browns.  Hope to see your photos soon and good luck on your next adventure.

Eastern Sierra Fishing / Eastern Sierra Report.....

Just found this board, and figured it would be perfect since i just got back from the bishop area.  I have never done any backcountry fishing up there until this trip and it was epic. We fished Long lake from the bishop pass trail head area the first day and then went up to the mosquito flat trail head and hit chicken foot, the other long lake, and box lake.  We also fished the upper owens rivers for a few hours.  Ill Post some pics but it was epic, caught no less than 40 fish a day, most in the 10-13" category.  I really want to catch a big alpine brown.  Any suggestions on a lake?  I was reading about rock creek  Going up in a few weeks again and im going to try and squeeze in 2 trips before winter sets in.

When I said in the area where you shoot, I meant nearby like within a mile and a half. We took that turn off and went the wrong way. I didn't have the coordinates with me so we missed it. Found an area southeast of your spot with good backstops so we stayed there. Used a Findme Spot for the coordinates of that area so it was interesting to look at the two sites on Google earth.
