Well, not the seasonal late april opener but none the less, the opener.
Arrived Sat Evening with my wife and two sons. buddy had a spot for us at the Crowley RV park where we typically call home. love that spot. Joseph runs a good ship and always stokes us out.
plan was to stay through Tuesday. ended up staying till Wednesday am. just got home this afternoon.
anyhow, buddy Mitch fished Saturday (pre blow) and absolutely slammed them. All troll fish. 18’ down rogers and lead core at 4-5 colors. doubles all morning. 30 fish morning. nothing under a pound and some as good as 20”.
we slammed them on Sunday. between trolling for 4 hours, we caught and released 50 plus. my two sons hit the point from. shore and released a dozen or so. one being 24”.
Monday, more or the same. Tuesday, am, more of the same.
we did a drive up to Rock Creek lake tuesday evening. natives were slamming the flies behind the bubble bobber game.
caught at least 150 fish over 3 days. total of 8 kept - 6 eaten, 2 home for the smoker. lots of people keeping massive stringers. i still can’t see why but the limit is 5 per person so all good!
go get them boys and girls. DM me for any information or details you may be looking for. happy to assist.

Great job!
I thought all lodging and campgrounds were still closed up there?When my reservations in the loop were cancelled i tried a couple private campgrounds and they said they were not allowed to open yet,looks like its opened up now?

So, i can’t give you a straight, definitive answer. here’s what I saw.
it seems that private campgrounds can open. Crawley was open. they are full through June is what I heard. all the national forest campgrounds are still closed at least when we ventured up into Inyo toward Rock Creek and Mesquite Flats. the lakes were made accessible for fishing, by way of day use parking, but all campgrounds were closed.
I ran to the Mammoth hardware store one day and noticed the campground alongside the highway, just befor town, was open.
Convict Lake Campgrojnd was closed, as was their cabins and resteraunt. Only Monday, June 1, were they going to be able to rent boats and such. Convict had the impression that july 1 was their open date.
so, just double check obviously.

the ocean is great but there is something special and only attainable, fishing the high sierras. from here to Colorado i just can’t explain it. i’m closer to selling out than ever before. a can of worms and a 6 pack of Bud goes a long ways up there....
