Owens Valley Warm Water Fisheries

Fishing is legal all year on the Owens River! The warm water fisheries on Rawson canal, that runs alongside the Owens river, are the perfect place for a quick fishing outing or family fun fishing day. Fishing in this series of beautifully maintained warm water ponds known as the Rawson and Buckley Ponds, less than 5-miles east of Bishop, can yield bass, bluegill, carp and even catfish.

Specially designed accessible piers for fishing are located at the ponds providing safe access for the physically disabled to be at the water’s edge to fish or just enjoy the view. It is a wonderful wintertime fishing experience.

Just a reminder that licenses are required and all current regulations must be followed.
