Fresno County boasts endless opportunities for anyone interested in fishing. Enjoy a relaxing day on Millerton Lake or Pine Flat Lake, perfect for the whole family. Take a short drive up into the Sierra Nevada and find one of the many lakes that are stocked with trout each year. For the more adventurous, take a hike into the backcountry of Kings Canyon National Park to chase after feisty wild trout. 

Local Lakes

There are 2 lakes that are just a quick drive from Fresno and Clovis. Millerton Lake is located to the north and is a popular fishing spot for both spotted and largemouth bass. Pine Flat Lake is to the east and had excellent fishing for bass, crappie, and trout. These lakes see a lot of boat traffic during the summer months. Both bodies of water host professional and semi-professional bass tournaments annually.

Sierra Nevada Lakes

There are multiple lakes within a 1-2 hour drive into the mountains from Fresno and Clovis. Popular among fisherman and boaters are Shaver Lake and Huntington Lake. Higher up in elevation, Courtright and Wishon Reservoirs offer a place to fish with less traffic from recreational swimming and boating. In the lower elevations of Kings Canyon National Park is Hume Lake.
