Trout season

Post By: Flyrodn      Posted: 3/31/2017 10:54:09 AM     Points: 177102    
Just updated the calendar for April with CDFW events for April. Please submit any updates you have. The calendar is free.

General Eastern Sierra Trout Opener. The general trout season will open one hour before sunrise April 29 in waters in Mono and Inyo counties. This is one of the most popular season openers in the state with anglers coming from around California to try their luck in the high mountains of the Sierra Nevada. Because of the popularity of this annual event with the angling public, CDFW is striving to stock trout in all accessible waters approved for planting prior to the season opener. Most lakes, rivers and streams have a limit of five trout per day and 10 in possession. However, regulations differ on season opening and closing dates, bag limits, minimum and maximum size limits, and gear restrictions. Anglers are advised to check specific area regulations and opening dates in the 2017/18 California Freshwater Sport Fishing Regulations booklet at [log in for link] for regulations specific to each body of water. A helpful document, the Eastern Sierra Back Country Fishing Guide, is available at [log in for link]

To me, this is the best time of year to catch trout!

The calendar is a great place to get the word out on your events!

Agreed, just be run off gets into full swing is a great time for trout fishing. Although the dry fly crowd tend to favor right after run off and then fall for the terrestrial "hatch".
