Fishing in and Around Edison Lake

Fishing at VVR
Few spots offer such superb opportunities for fishing as Lake Edison. With the 15 mile per hour speed limit for boats, it's easy to enjoy the peaceful setting. The crystal clear water and legendary trout fishing make this the ultimate destination for avid anglers looking to hook up a German Brown, Rainbow or Golden Trout. The lake head dock is an easy one-mile walk to Quail Meadows and the JMT/PCT.

Enjoy a day of fishing and hiking. Brook and Golden Trout are found in Cold Creek and Mono Creek, which are the two primary streams that feed Edison Lake. Bear Creek is always a popular fishing stream and is a short car ride away.

Trolling with spinners dragging night crawlers or lures can lead to a huge thrill when one of those big German Browns gets hungry. Passes in front of the dam can be very productive. The far side of the lake where Mono Creek enters and the Edison Queen ferry greets PCT/JMT hikers is another potential hot spot for anglers.

Make sure to keep safe by having your own personal flotation devices with you when out on the water. It can be very cold and if you fall into the lake, hypothermia can cause you severe problems.

There is a convenient launch ramp for those bringing their own boats to Edison Lake. Convenient nearby parking for boat trailers is provided. The resort has many watercraft available for those interested. Visit the Boat Rentals link to see the variety of items you can rent.
