Does anyone know whether or not there is a fair amount of shore fishing in the Mammoth Lakes area?
We just got back from Big Bear Lake and there was plenty of shore fishing there.
How would the Mammoth Lakes and area compare?
Thanks in advance for your assistance, we are planning a trip to Mammoth Lakes next providing we had opportunities to shore fish.

Tons! There's Lake Mary, Lake Maime, Twin Lakes, and up the road a little ways, there's June Lake. Go for it!

I have fished at both Big Bear Lake and the Bishop, Mammoth area. When we made four or five day trips to Mammoth back in the late 1980s to go skiing we would often spend our last day fishing near Bishop at Gorge Road and/or Pleasant Valley Reservoir. As far as I knew then, it was year round fishing (didn't have to wait for opening day of trout season). These two places aren't as scenic as the upper lakes (Lake Sabrina, Convict Lake) though. I think Big Bear is probably more crowded as would be expected. Those were fun days.

Shore fishing in the Mammoth Lakes area is awesome! There are tons of beautiful lakes in that area. Our favorite is Convict Lake, its gotta be one of the most picturesque place around & you can catch some pretty big fish there!

Lake Crowley, Horseshoe Lake, Twin Lakes, Lake Mary, Lake George .. Kirman Lake, and lots of streams to fish between Mammoth and Bridgeport & beyond! WAY more fishing spots than the Big Bear area has to offer.

We haven't been up in a few years, boy do I miss it ...

Default Thank you

Thanks to all of you that replied to my question. Your answers have been very helpful to me and now I just know that we will be going there and will enjoy the cooler weather as well as the fishing.

Walker River is renowned for its fishing. Convict is impressive. Mammoth is a great fishing area (hiking and golf are good too).

If you think that Big Bear Lake has good shore fishing, then you'll be amazed at what the Mammoth and Eastern Sierra areas offer. Big Bear pales by comparison. As others have mentioned, not only do you have the Mammoth Lakes, there are also several others up and down the "Eastern Sierra", such as Convict, Sabrina, South Lake, North Lake, Intake II, Ellery, Tioga, Saddleback, Twin Lakes (Bridgeport area), Virginia Lakes, Lundy, Crowley (though better with a boat), Pleasant Valley (open year round, I believe), numerous creeks and streams, etc.

Check out maps of the area in Inyo and Mono counties, and you will probably be amazed. The area from Lone Pine to the Nevada border along Highway 395 has places to fish every few miles, some very close to the highway, others further in towards the mountains. If you can, get a fishing guide for the area, and it will give you more information about these places than what you'll get in a few responses here.

Good luck on choosing a place to fish. I am sure you will find the fishing to be much better than Big Bear, and the scenery to be far more spectacular.
Happy Fishing!
