Hot Creek Fishing Report

Hot Creek - Mammoth Lakes, CA (Mono County)

by Tom Loe

Hey all, Great news!! After a lot of hard work, D.F.W. has decided to introduce over 6,000 diploid fish to Hot Creek this year and 12,000 per year over the next few years until we reach 6,000 fish per mile while doing an electroshock survey each year to see how the spawn is doing. The goal is to get this once incredible fishery back to what it once was.
WE NEED VOLUNTEERS TO HELP MOVE THESE FISH ON OCTOBER 6th. If you have ever guided or enjoyed an afternoon of fishing on Hot Creek, You must help!!

This is very important to us all!! Please save the date and tell all of your friends! This is not one of those “Oh, I wish I could help but I am busy that day” deals. This is about the future of one of the most important fisheries in our area!!!. IT IS TIME TO GIVEBACK!! Time and place to be determined but probably 9AM at the paved parking area at the bottom of the lower public.
Please reply to this email to let me know you will be able to make it. If I don’t hear from you, I will probably call you, so sign up today and save the date!! The more help we have, the fewer trips we will have to make.
Thank you in advance and I look forward to seeing you on the 6th!
