Fishing in the Mammoth Area
I have laid aside business, and gone a'fishing. - Izaak Walton
Meandering streams, secluded high country watering holes and large majestic lakes await visitors from all over the world. From the small child dipping a line for the first time to the seasoned veteran, there is an enjoyable fishing experience for everyone.
The famous Alpers Trout stocking program in the Mammoth Lakes Basin and many surrounding area lakes and streams attract fishing enthusiasts year after year!
