Grant Lake Marina and Campground. No phone. The lake is full up and over the spillway. Best approach is by boat for best access. When it’s full like this some of the shore fishing gets cut down in particular along the west or highway side. The east or back side is accessible via dirt roads. Harold at the marina tells me trolling is the way to go for some nice Browns in the mornings 5 to 7 colors lead core with copper and copper/orange Speedy Shiners and the most popular lure in the Eastern Sierra, red and gold Thomas Bouyants. He adds that there’s a heck of a lot of fish out there and the bite should improve as the Rush Creek run-off slows and less food is being pushed into the lake.

Good luck on your next fishing adventure. If you have a question. a report in our local fishing area or have a photo of your catch, send it to [email protected]. Hope to see you on the waters. Good fishin' and tight lines.
