FISHING CALIFORNIA

Fifth Lake


April 17, 2024

The Fifth Lake fishing area is situated in the John Muir Wilderness of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in California. The lake is home to rainbow and golden trout, which can be caught using fly fishing and spin casting techniques. Hiking, camping, and wildlife watching are popular activities in the surrounding area. The best time to visit is from June to October when the weather is mild, with average temperatures ranging from 60-80°F. Fishing in the early morning or late evening is most productive, and anglers should bring a selection of dry flies, nymphs, and streamers to increase their chances of success.
