Yep, fishing is still the primary activity in Mammoth Lakes during the summer months. The lakes are full of juicy trout and there are plenty of fish contests for the hard core. The best fishing this time of year is the out of the way "hide-aways" in the Mammoth Lakes basin, or nearby streams. There are more lakes than just the Mammoth basin so you may want to check out our secret spots. We also have the trout stocking schedule so if you want to make sure you don't get "skunked". (Tuesdays and Thursdays!) The bait and tackle stores in Mammoth can also help you with the right "power bait" to make sure you're a winner. And don't forget you need a a license to fish.
