THE FISH REPORT

April 2nd 2020

Due to the current COVID 19 restrictions the store is closed to walk in business. We are available to take telephone calls and will continue shipping online orders for the time being. Pick up orders can be arranged for those who are already in the area. 

On April 1st the Mono County Supervisors approved a letter to the Governor and CDFW requesting they postpone the fishing opener.

If you are not in the area, Please Stay Home. This is a fluid situation and could change at any moment. That said, only a few folks are getting out to fish but not many reports coming in. If you do head out please be respectful of the rules in place, maintain your distance and be safe.

Winter hours in the shop: Temporary Closure
