Off Road fishing trails ????????

So I love to do a little fishing and just bought my first jeep opening up much more territory for me to cover. I keep envisioning a trail that would lead to a great fishing lake or stream. I don't know if a trail like this in southern or central california exists, but if it does I would love to hear about it if it does.

Always wondered about that myself.

In pinecove, by Idyllwild, There's a difficult trail that merges with a highway close by a pond called lake Fulmore. The trail is possible with any jeep , since I took it with my sport wrangler when its stock, but there are a few places one might need a spotter/buddy if the driver is inexperienced. I drove the trail twice both ways and one time after fishing, but the trail is only worth it if you have a house in pinecove or Idyllwild since the trail starts in pinecove, and one can go to the lake via highway.

Not sure this is what your looking for but its the closest that I can think of around here

going out thru Monache Meadows, in the southern Sierras is cool. Go on up to the dam, and waterfall, then walk or hike up stream for those elusive Golden trout!
So many trails up there, you would never be able to do them all, and although the drought has dried up the Kern River, there are some trails up, like Salmon Creek, and the Slide area, near Brushy Creek.

I just came back from Laurel Lakes, just south of Mammoth. Apparently it's a good fishing spot (there were a couple other Jeeps there, all with fishermen). Here's my rundown on the trail:

Laurel Lakes - Eastern Sierras - California

It's the last turn off 395 before you hit Mammoth. Heading north on 395, turn left onto Sherwin Creek Road. Go about 1.5 miles down Sherwin Creek road to the Laurel Lakes trailhead. The trail itself is about 4.5 miles to the lake.

Even if you don't catch anything, it's absolutely AMAZING scenery. Just please pack your discarded fishing line out, I pulled a bunch of it out of the bushes along the lake.

Thats the one I was looking for. Couldn't remember the name but had seen some pics. I get to Mammoth every two years so that is something thats doable.

We just returned also from the Bishop area. Accidentally found several mild trails in the McGee Creek and Upper Owens Valley.In addition,the Kern River water level was low this month according to the locals we visited.

Jadewolf- thanks for the info. We will try the Laural Lakes area in Sept.
