Trips & Rates

Crowley Lake trips will be aboard our spacious boat - find out more about the vessel here. All fishing gear including rod, reel and tackle will be provided. Water will be provided. All you need to bring is your own food/beverage, warm clothes, sunblock/sun wear, and a valid California fishing license for all anglers 16 years of age or older, which can be purchased at one of many sporting goods stores in Mammoth Lakes or Bishop. Tips are not included in the rates below but are highly appreciated if you feel your guide earned it.


All trout fishing will strictly be catch and release in an effort to help preserve and protect our truly special fishery. For those that like to keep fish to eat, we target Sacaremento perch, also known as Crowley chicken as they are great eating (much tastier than trout). We target them in shallow water with light gear, making for fun fishing. They average about one pound each with 2+ pound fish common. With a limit of 25 perch per person/per day, it's not hard to see why so many people like targeting these for the fun and table fare!

Our most popular trip and for good reason - morning is a great time to be on Crowley. Get to experience what the lake has to offer, utilizing different techniques. Great action in a calm setting most mornings into early afternoon. These trips fill up fast on weekends and holidays!

Some of our best scores and biggest fish are consistently caught on PM trips. Don't shy away from this trip just because of what you might've heard about the wind on Crowley. While the lake is known for it's afternoon wind, most days it's calm by late afternoon and we experience great fishing in a much less crowded atmosphere in comparison to the morning. Afternoon and evening can be a magical time on the lake making one think "where are all the fishermen?" and "do we really have this place all to ourselves?"

A trip made by fishermen, for fishermen. With so many requests by clients for extended trips and custom time framed trips, we came up with the fisherman's special. Some of our best fishing is consistently found on these trips. We get out there as the thick of the morning crowd moves back in and with the extended hours we more than often score big. A great trip for everyone, especially dedicated anglers!
