For many decades, the last Saturday in April has been the day that the State of California’s trout fishing season opened in the Eastern Sierra. It is an unofficial holiday, where traditionally thousands of visitors arrive to help kick off the season, looking forward to the Summer. Local merchants have anticipated the Trout Opener each year as a busy tourist weekend, helping to sustain their businesses until the peak season of July and August, when folks enjoy their summer vacations. That tradition may be coming to an end.
Mark your calendar for April 27, 2013. That is when Trout season opens in the Eastern Sierra. The June Lake Loop has been a prime destination for trout fishing for nearly 100 years! We look forward to welcoming fishermen back to enjoy the beauty of the Loop, and the warm, friendly atmosphere you will experience here.
The Annual Monster Trout contest is a tradition in which you may receive prizes for your catch, in a variety of categories.
Once again the opening of Trout Season on the last Saturday in April will bring throngs of anglers to the entire Eastern Sierra. Here in the June Lake Loop the Monster Trout Contest has been part of the celebration for many decades, and this year will be no exception. This year's prizes will be awarded in "June Bucks," which may be redeemed just like cash at participating June Lake Loop merchants and businesses (almost anywhere in town)!
