Lake George Mammoth Lakes Trout Fishing and the Real Yogi Bear

Lake George Mammoth Lakes Trout Fishing and the Real Yogi Bear

Trout, bass, the float and fly technique transcends multiple species. But this guy, I call him Yogi, has his own unique method of trout fishing.   

Before I get to Yogi's technique here is one of my go-to set-ups I've been using successfully in the Sierra Nevadas year after year. 

The set-up, a wooly bugger fly, bubble, spinning gear and light line.

It’s essentially the same as a Float and Fly technique that is commonly used for largemouth bass, smallmouth bass and so many other species, both freshwater, and saltwater.

Now I’m the first to grill a fresh caught trout, delicious, but there is an excellent reason I let them go on this Lake George trip.

It’s this guy and he has an effective trout technique of his own.

Just like the fictional Yogi Bear, he sleeps in during the mornings. This gives all the shore anglers a chance to load up their stringers.

Then he comes down the mountain mid-morning, chasing fisherman away, looting their stringers. Now that is some serious poaching!
