Big Pine Cover

This plan represents a substantial CDFW effort to optimize the quality of wilderness angling in the Big Pine Basin, Inyo County, while maintaining natural biodiversity using a systematic and basin-wide resource assessment and planning approach. Implementation of the plan will result in refined fisheries management that is based on new information and our current biological understanding of high elevation trout and frog populations, the development of a quality golden trout fishery, the development of new methods to improve self-sustaining trout fisheries, and the restoration and expansion of a mountain yellow-legged frog population.
