Guided Fishing
Guided fishing trips on beautiful South Lake are now available through Parchers Resort! Take advantage of our staff's fishing knowledge and learn the most productive spots, the hottest techniques, and the best baits to use at South Lake. Nobody fishes South Lake more than our crew does and that day to day knowledge of where the fish are and what it takes to fool them is unbeatable. Our crew's specialty is catching trophy rainbows on plastics and artificial baits so if you'd like to learn how to fish mini-jigs or trout worms to bag the big one, we can help. We are experienced in bait, lure and trolling techniques so each trip is designed to meet your specific angling goals. Our guided trips are family friendly and beginners are welcome. Whether its your first time fishing for high sierra trout or if you've been fishing the area for years, you're sure to learn something new on your trip.
