Super-low Sabrina will still be fishable for Opener

April 18, 2013

Lake Sabrina, west of Bishop, is nearly dry, with what little water there is divided between the two natural lakes that existed before the reservoir was built. The water is expected to be low and ice-free for the fishing opener next weekend, and anglers will likely have luck fishing the waters of the deeper second lake. Photo courtesy Rick and Patti Apted
