June Lake Loop Fishing

Fishing the June Lake Loop

The June Lake Loop is a favorite fishing destinations for serious anglers. They come for the Lahontan cutthroat trout (June Lake only), the rainbow trout and the brown trout. They also plant Alper's trout.

Where to Fish

June Lake: Troll the road side of the lake, hitting the coves, around the marinas. Also try the far shore near the middle part of the lake. Shore fishing is good along the beach area, across the lake along the steep wall, near the reeds along the west side of the lake, and near Boulder Lodge.

Gull Lake: Many anglers like to work the hole just to the left of the marina, but the favorite spot on the lake is known as The Rock.

Silver Lake: Shore fishing near the parking lot at the south end of the lake is productive. Also try fishing where Rush Creek enters the lake and around the little islands at the south end. Float tube anglers do well along the southeast shoreline.

Grant Lake: Try fishing where Park Creek and Rush Creek enter the lake. The peninsula is usually a good spot where big brown trout are caught. Sheepherders' Bay is another favorite spot with locals. Often the Narrows near the marina can be productive.
