San Joaquin River

Located 25 minutes west of Mammoth Lakes, this Freestone River provides some of the most beautiful scenery a high mountain stream can offer. The crystal clear waters of the San Joaquin runs through a high mountain, rugged looking landscape and offers forgiving wading opportunities during the summer months. For those of you looking to tie on your favorite dry fly and start fishing  your way into the wilderness, this is the place! The 4th of July is usually the kick off for prodigious angling opportunities through October. This is a great place to escape the crowds and have fun with your 3wt. Fish populations are high with Brown, Rainbow, Brook and Rainbow-Golden hybrids, eager to take well-presented flies.
