Fishing at Convict Lake – Mammoth Lakes, CA

fallfishing

Convict Lake fishing is arguably some of the best in the West and one of the most popular fishing “holes” in the Eastern Sierra, boasting a fantastic stock of Rainbow and German Brown trout. The pristine lake is 168 acres and ringed with towering mountain peaks. Situated in a bowl at 7,580 feet, Convict Lake was developed by a moraine dam created from retreating glaciers.

Access at Convict Lake is easy and there are several options; hike the lovely trail that surrounds the lake, rent a boat from our marina, or launch your own boat.

Fishing season starts annually on the last Saturday of April, one hour before sunrise and ends on November 15, one hour after sunset.

We are a California Department of Fish & Wildlife fishing license outlet and the lake is stocked weekly by the Department of Fish & Wildlife. Convict Lake Resort also provides supplemental stocking of Rainbow Trout throughout the season.
