Fishing Derbies in Mammoth

Mammoth Fishing You like to fish? Then you will love the Mammoth Lakes fishing derbies scheduled for this year. Convict Lake hosts the following derbies and they are the best things happening if you like to put your pole in the water and possibly win a prize for the big fish. If you can't tell by now, fishing around here is a big deal. We take great pride that we grow our own Alpers Trout and we stock the lakes with plump large trout so you can have lots of fun. The Department of Fish and Game also stock the lakes so you always have something to catch when you're here. Thank goodness the state of California believes in our economy and tourism! This is the current upcoming calendar of events.
