Bass Lake at Yosemite



During spring, summer, and fall, Bass Lake at Yosemite attracts water sports enthusiasts. Anglers and water skiers can bring their own boats or rent one at the nearby marina to explore the lake, which stretches more than 6 miles into the valley behind the dam. If you’re after a fish dinner, you might cast your line for the bass that gave the lake its name ( a fourteen-pound lunker was caught here), or catfish, crappie, rainbow trout, or kokanee salmon. If you prefer simply to enjoy the scenery, rent a party barge. At 3, feet, Bass Lake at Yosemite is above the heat of California’s Central Valley and low enough to enjoy four seasons without the heavy snowfall found in the higher mountains. In spring the oak trees come alive with green leaves that turn to crimson and as autumn approaches.
