Two dry years in the Eastern Sierra and a Southern California Edison project that required the lake to be drained has Lake Sabrina west of Bishop looking like an alien moonscape.
Sabrina, a favorite destination in the Sierra, is currently so low that it has reverted back to being two separate natural lakes, and the smaller of the two is nearly dry.
What that means for next weekendâ€™s fishing opener remains to be seen, but Sabrina Lake Boat Landing owner Juanita Apted is optimistic.
Bishopâ€™s Lady Broncos softball team heads to arch-rival Kern Valley tomorrow right where coach Stacy Van Nest wanted her team: 3-0 in league.

â€śThe girls had a fantastic game,â€ť said Van Nest. â€śWe had big hits, bunts, outstanding pitching and great defensive plays.â€ť
Kellie Tiner: 7 innings, 13 Ks, 0 runs, 1 hit, 1 walk

The Lone Pine Lady Golden Eagles have been on a rampage, demolishing the Silver Valley Trojans 18-7 last Friday and sending the Mammoth Lady Huskies yelping back up the mountain Tuesday with a 23-8 win.
The Silver Valley win came after Lone Pineâ€™s two-week spring break but there no signs of rust on the Eagles.
â€śWe came out pretty strong,â€ť said coach Liz Jones, â€świth 6 clean infield outs and only 2 errors.â€ť
Amanda Barlese, with 4 hits on 5 at-bats, and Lacie Jones, at 3 for 4, led the hitting streak. â€śWe racked up a total of 14 hits,â€ť said Jones.
The Lone Pine Golden Eagles nine have turned the corner, logging back-to-back wins over Silver Valley (8-1) last week and over the Mammoth Huskies (16-6) Tuesday.
The corner turned was the nasty error corner. The Eagles have solid pitching and strong offense, but until the game with the Silver Valley Trojans, have been plagued by defensive errors.
â€śWe had no errors against Silver Valley,â€ť said coach Mike Button.
The win avenges the Eaglesâ€™ season-opening loss, 10-13, to the Trojans last month, a defeat that was rife with errors.
It was great weather for basketball at Frazier Mountain Tuesday as the Bishop Broncos nine got blown off the side of the hill with a 2-10 loss, the teamâ€™s first High Desert League loss since the 2009-10 season.
â€śIt sounds worse than it really was,â€ť said coach Tim Reid. â€śWe didnâ€™t play that badly, we just made some defensive mistakes. You canâ€™t make mistakes against that good a team.
â€śSome positive things happened. We fought to the end and thatâ€™s a good thing to see.â€ť
