Bishop Creek Canyon
Bishop Creek Canyon - Part 2
As I mentioned last summer, Id be coming back to Bishop Creek Canyon again the next summer. Last time I only was able to spend 3 days there, but this time I had a whole week to discover the best fishing to be had in the Bishop Creek back-country.
Fishing was pretty good most places and at times outstanding. Last time I went for numbers, this year I went for quality and size. I still missed some great fishing holes that will have again to wait for this summers trip. I will report back to this Board later for Bishop Creek Canyon (Part 3?) if any here are still interested.
Smitty of Parchers Resort was quite busy this time around working fixing/doing maintenance though-out the Resort, so didnt get to talk to him much on any fishing tips, but did run into the co-owners of the resort (Judy & Steve Smith). Did get the scoop on several good fishing lakes, but the best part of our conversation was of a hand drawled map made from an employee of Parchers from the 1920s! What surprised me was it had a different trail going up to Bishop Pass! The old road/trail went first to a mine, then up to the pass. Well I found this old trail that has not been used over 50-70 + years and found whats left of the mine. I love these discoveries!
Anyway, the following lakes and streams were highly recommended by the Smiths for the best fishing and size in Bishop Creek Canyon backcountry:To be continued
