Anyone have any insight as to the status of the “Mammoth Lakes”? I’ve clicked around and nothing current or specific to the area. Last I saw was several weeks ago and roads still closed. More snow headed that way end of this week and possibly next week.....

My guess is that Lake Mary/Twin Lakes road will still be closed.
I was up there 5 weeks ago skiing and I have NEVER seen that much snow up there and I've been going up since '83.
June might be an option if the ice has melted.
Ski operations are scheduled to stay open 'til July 4!

I just looked at the Mammoth cam at Tamarack,still quite a bit of snow on the ground.The snow that is coming will be on the top,rain down below.Im going up to ski the 20th,I was up a few weeks ago and IMO,you got about 2 hours of OK skiing,after that a lot of slush.I skied in the AM and fished Hot Creek after lunch.Tom

Still tons of snow around the lakes basin. Lake Mary is buried and still frozen, like George and mamie. Twin lakes is showing small spots of water but still not accessible to fish, unless you wanna risk your life. Crowley, Convict, all of June lake loop and Bridgeport reservoir are open.

Yes the cams are awesome, I live here all year round so I’m giving you a what’s happening right now report as well. Very true about the airport weather reports, most people don’t know that.

Are you guys gonna fish or ski? Crowley has been good in the north arm and McGee bay. I’ve been fly fishing the last few weeks and it’s starting to turn on at Crowley. Healthy rainbows and Browns with a sprinkling of cutthroats. All midge fishing

Shon,
Do you think twin lakes will be open by June 7th?
If we keep having weather like we are now, no. Hopefully this week is it and we can get back on that warm streak. But it is the mountains and Mother Nature does what she wants when she wants.

Bishop is always another option, a lot of people forget about the beautiful lakes they have and there’s tons of camping too. The Owens valley is one of our favorite places to go when the weather in Mammoth is crap! Just a thought!

Its official. Twin lakes mammoth refunded my money for my reservation on jun7-11. Ended up getting a couple campsites next to each other at Sherwin creek. Anyone got any recent fish report from that area? I think they are stalking twin lakes this week.
