Enjoy Mammoth Lakes Spring Fishing

The fishing season in Mammoth Lakes kicks off at the end of every April. Avid anglers will flock to our alpine lakes to experience some of the best trout fishing in the region. And you will always have an abundance of fish available since Mono County stocks almost 17,000 pounds of trout in our local waters every year!

Discover the Best Mammoth Lakes Fishing Spots on our blog. Catch all four species of trout during your trip, and you’ve got yourself a Sierra Slam!

Experience Kayaking & Paddling

Experience the best of both worlds by starting your day skiing, followed by afternoons at the lake. Soak up the sunshine while boating around Mono Lake, one of the oldest lakes in the country! And make sure to dress in layers since Mammoth Lakes May weather can be unpredictable. 

Biking & Hiking Trails Re-Open at Lower Elevation

May is a spectacular time for hiking and biking in the Mammoth Lakes area! The Mammoth Mountain Bike Park can sometimes re-open at the end of May, depending on the snow year, but road biking will be your best option.  

Low-elevation hiking trails, like Lower Rock Creek, are the first trails to re-open when the snow starts to melt. Keep up to date with hiking trails open during your visit, and you may be lucky enough to see the trails blossoming with wildflowers!
