Crowley Lake Fishing Report, May 11, 2017

2017 Season - 395 North bound! 

Greetings everyone! I am back online, in communicado, and gearing up!

It has been a historic 2017 wet winter throughout California. Over 60 feet of snow in the Eastern Sierra mountains. Water, water, water, anywhere you go in the state. From northern California to southern, from east to west, and abound, large volumes of water are gushing and flowing. This past winter, I visited areas in the Western Sierra side such as the Kings River, and just recently the Kern River.  Amazing amounts of water are already flowing and we are not  in the full spring run off.

The following pics are the Kern River from the Bakersfield entrance taken the end of this April.

Water flow through the town of Kernville. Lot's of water!

Water has also been consistently flowing down the San Fernando Valley aqueduct (seen off the Interstate 5 freeway in Sylmar, Ca) from the Eastern Sierra into Los Angeles reservoirs. Even in the hot desert, where the desert sand meets the San Jacinto mountains, amazing volumes of aqua blue, cold water can be seen on the White Water river located off the Interstate 10 freeway near Palm Springs.

Aqua blue water flow from the White River into the desert sand, amazing volume!

I will be 395 north bound May 15th for the 2017 season. One of my favorite drives during the year! The start of the season has seen cooler weather, and October type lake levels currently in preparation for the huge spring run off.

Information I am receiving is the overall bite has been slow to good. The better bite seems to get going after 9am. Fishing is in deeper water, anywhere from 16 to 23 feet. We will be using our 10 foot rods with long sliding indicator line rig set-ups. I will get dialed in once I get there.

I will be posting reports regularly on my Facebook (FB) business page. Reminder! You do not have to be a member of FB to access my FB page. Just click on the FB  link found in my website at and you will be routed directly.

I will also continue posting my fishing reports on my website every two weeks. The other source for fish reports and Sierra related news is my monthly Newsletter which is delivered to all who provide their "authorization" to get on the email list. If your interested in receiving my Newsletter, just send me a text or email and I will sign you up.

I am currently booking reservations for guide trips. I will be at Crowley to the end of October. I look forward to hopefully seeing all of you during the season. 

Next stop......Crowley Lake!
