California's Bishop Creek Basin

March 28, 2009 By: Marshall Cutchin

“Two forks of Bishop Creek provide anglers with scenery, solitude and spectacular pools that might yield an 8-pound rainbow along with the fishing experience of a lifetime. Smaller ponds in the basin can yield native brook trout or offer a still-water paradise where flyfishermen can spend hours connecting with stocked rainbows or native browns.” Ernie Cowan describes the fishing opportunities in California’s Bishop Basin, which despite drawing plenty of attention to its stocked lakes and streams also contains plenty of hike-and-fish opportunities and a number of wilderness lakes.
