Fishing in Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks


Try your hand at fly fishing with Sierra Fly Fisher - the first NPS-approved guided service ever permitted to fish Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks.

The rivers, lakes and creeks found in Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks delight anglers of all ages and abilities.  Kings Canyon's Lewis Creek, Bubbs Creek and the Motor Nature Trail (Cedar Grove) are popular spots, as is Hume Lake, where the U.S. Forest Service stocks trout. Fishing licenses are required for anglers age 16 and older. 

At Sequoia, fly fishing is much more than a sport - it is an art, a craft, and a science. People here have been casting imitation insects upon the water, hoping to hook a big one, for thousands of years. But for all its mystique, one thing is crystal-clear: learn a few basic skills, and you will be rewarded with many wonderful hours on the water.

Sierra Fly Fisher – the first National Parks-approved Sequoia fishing guide service to ever be permitted to fish the Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks – offers guided half-day and full-day excursions. All gear is provided and Sierra Fly Fisher’s expert guides offer a great introduction to the sport for beginning anglers – even if you don’t know the difference between a caddis and a nymph.
