Trail System Update
- Fire restrictions in place. Ongoing drought conditions and well below average rain and snowfall this past winter have led to very dry conditions for this time of year. Please visit the Inyo National Forest website for more information.
The rivers that run through Montana and Wyoming may get more attention, but no matter how you do it, Mammoth Lakes is one of the best places in the country to fish for trout.
