This Sierra Nevada gem is a classic mountain impoundment and heaven for trout, trout, and trout! They patrol submerged timber, stump fields, and stick-ups as their primary habitat, and the water is usually very clear. There are also some terrific boulders and shelves that add to the mix of structure and cover. This is the real deal for Sierra foothills trout. Types of Fish: Rainbow and brown trout, smallmouth bass, panfish. This fly-fishing chapter describes the "where, when, and how" for fishing in this area. It includes a full-page map and information on the known hatches, suggested equipment to use, the best flies to use, season, limits, nearby accommodations, and camping.
