Bishop and Inyo National Park

Friday April 26th, 2019

We decided to stay in Bishop because we wanted to break up our drive north. It turns out that this is really somewhere we will want to make a destination. The Fly Fishing Stores, and Sporting Stores were bustling because Saturday is opening day of Trout season. The RV park was full and apparently it is “Fishmas” in Bishop. One Fish and Fly shop had chili dogs cooking outside and bales of hay to eat on. It gave the fisherman something to do until there was room in the store for one more customer. Seriously PACKED with fisher-people. JP heard there was great bass fishing lakes nearby but we are on a short stay so he’ll have to wait until we come back this way.


We took a drive up to the Inyo National Park. Its so beautiful there with the warm weather and sunshine. The landscape is high desert surrounded by the amazing snow capped Sierra Nevada mountains.

There’s camping and hiking all around this area. We stopped at Sabrina Lake, but it’s still mostly frozen over.

Later that evening we made a visit to the Paiute Palace Casino. We had a good time but didn’t overstay – after all our next stop is RENO.
