    I am taking family up to Sierras next week for 4 days .
    Can anyone recommend a decent place to visit that might offer cabins near some streams for some good trout fishing ??? It will be 5 of us going.

    Thanks, Gerry

    Cardinal Village has a stream running between the cabins. They have a private pond that is stocked. It's central to North Lake, Sabrina Lake and South Lake.

    Back in the 70's and 80's we spent a lot of time fishing and hiking that area. You can hike to remote lakes and catch native trout.

    Mike -. I have not been tracking weather up there recently but has there been record snowfall this year ? If so, how can I work around that ? Is the area still fishable at times like this ?

    Thanks, Gerry

    Real High, the temps up here in NorCal have been high 80's low 90's at the foothill elevations 1k to 3k elev. with a lot of snow pack still on the mountains. People are getting swept away on a regular basis.........guess they don't know that because it is recent snow the water is not only going 40mph or more it is effin cold.

    I'm fond of bridgeport reservoir,good quality good numbers .I usually stay at virginia creek settlement .
    They have cabins a bit rustic but reasonably priced. The creek runs right thru the property .You can literally almost fish from your front porch.
    I like the fall up there .Early season water can be high and it can be buggy .When things cool in the fall there's less people water is lower and not so many bugs.

    Try Tom’s Place, just below Rock Creek lake. The cabins are definitely not fancy, but serviceable and affordable. Plenty of creeks around to fish in that area and Rock Creek lake is easy to shore fish off.

    On way home from Bridgeport now. All the streams were unfishable with high flows. The reservoir was slow but good quality. Twins seemed the same. Doc N Al’s had cabins available mid week if you don’t need nice. Kinda hard to get a drive up cabin rental this time of year tho so I’d start calling around ASAP.

    The cabins at Convict are nice and you can fish both the lake and creek coming out!

    Another +1 for Tom’s Place Resort. Their rooms are quite small but clean.

    I just got back from a 4 day trip. Creeks are unfishable and dangerous for younger kids. Lakes are slow with very cold water. I go again late July and i bet the creeks will still be unfishable. Little virginia had a 5' wall of snow in the parking lot.

    Hey Tom, I live up here and I’m here now if you need some spots to fish pm me. I fished lake Mary today on my boat and caught some browns and a couple rainbows with a 3 pound kicker. Waters cold but floating crawlers off the bottom is working good. The usual kastmasters and Thomas bouyants are getting fish too.

    That’s awesome, we are super stoked on the
    Fly fishing up here. My son and I midge Crowley, Bridgeport and surrounding lakes quite often. As you know, streams, creeks and everything in between are raging right now. It’s only a matter of time before the run off slows down and the fishing gets going good.
