Golden Trout Pack Trips
We’ve been outfitting fishing trips for the past 15 years in the solitude of the beautiful Ansel Adams Wilderness and have expertly selected the best fishing spots for your trip. We set up camp in picturesque places near Yosemite National Park and treat you to mountain gourmet meals.
Camp and Food:
The camp setup includes folding chairs, enclosed privy, solar showers, horseshoe pitching set, etc. The meals are made with all fresh vegetables, fruit and entrees that will satisfy any fisherman. Our cooking has been described as five-star. Bring your own fishing gear.
Day One: Meet at the Pack Station in June Lake at 7:00 a.m., when breakfast will be served. We will partner you up with a horse to match you ability and then ride into the beautiful Ansel Adams Wilderness. Our lunch and fishing stop will be beside Crest Creek, where there will be plenty of Spawner Rainbow from Gem Lake. We will then continue to our first camp at Rush Creek. There will be plenty of time to fish that evening for Brookies in the nearby creek.
Day Two: After breakfast, we will take a day ride to Thousand Island Lake and the head waters of the San Joaquin River. There, you will fish for Rainbow/Golden hybrids. Our emphasis is on catch-and-release, but you are always welcome to enjoy your freshly caught back country trout with your dinner. After dinner, we will be fishing Rush Creek and Gem Lake.
Day Three: We will break camp in the morning and travel to Algers Lakes. At our base camp, you will have the best opportunity for catching large Golden Trout. We will spend the balance of the day fishing near camp and rounding off the evening with stories from the campfire.
Day Four: The group will have the whole day to fish Algers Lakes and find your favorite spot. You can expect to catch Goldens from 12-16 inches.
Day Five: Fish in the morning. After having lunch at the camp, we will return to the Pack Station, arriving at 4:00 p.m.
