Inyo County tops the list of premier California fishing destinations among avid anglers. The Eastern Sierra’s hidden alpine lakes and streams, Owens River, Owens Valley tributaries, and annual trout derbies offer year-round reel and fly fishing. The California Department of Fish and Game stocks Trophy Trout at various Inyo County locations. Anglers can also catch California golden trout, rainbows, bass, catfish, and crappie. Regular trout season in Inyo County runs from the last Saturday in April through October. Early-season fishing in Southern Inyo County opens the first weekend in March. A California fishing license is required to fish the Eastern Sierra.
