Guide to fish in the Eastern Sierras
« on: May 24, 2012, 07:48:12 AM »
This is the best guide I have ever seen.  Every lake from Lundy down in the eastern sierra.  Tells what fish you can expect to find and how to get to the lake.  Just thought I would share.  I am going to have to find me a good color printer. 

http://www.dfg.ca.gov/regions/6/  Look for the PDF file for “Eastern Sierra Back Country Fishing Guide”.

It is a great resource for back country information. A couple years ago on another site a guy that was in on the developing of the guide posted a temporary link to it. I was so excited about it my wife made a color copy of it before it went away for my birthday. The original working copy had embedded links to a lot more information but she didn't copy those pages. Even tho it's available on line now it's kind of cool have my own paper copy.

This is AWESOME.  Will definitely save on some exploration and fishless lakes.

Is Mills Lake actually fishless?  According to the guide there are no goldens left except in the outlet stream....

Edit:  Actually, I just read in another thread that it has been fishless for a while.  Sad... wasn't it the only golden spot in LLV?

I was up at Mills Lake about 3 summers ago and it appeared fishless to me.  No activity whatsoever!  I would be surprised if there are any golden trout in the outlet stream as the outlet goes underground as it leaves Mills Lake, it's very rocky there.  Has a decent spawning area in the inlet stream, so not sure what happened to this lake as I have caught goldens in the past in the 8-11” range.  Still, it's a pretty site, a crystal clear sierra lake, above tree level.  No frogs here either!

There is still goldens in the Treasure Lakes in Little Lakes Valley.
