Bring a tube or pontoon and work the higher lakes:

between Mammoth Lakes and the June Loop and Convict, Rock Creek, etc there are upwards of 20 beautiful lakes you can drive to and they are within an hour of watch other. Stay in/near Mammoth and be in the middle of it.

From many of those sites if you're willing to walk an hour you can be in special places. Buy a map. Visit the Troutfitter.

The Troutfitter & Trout Fly

They rent float tubes if you don't have one.

you can fish the upper section of the E. walker up to the second fence line, before it turns into private property. you may have some cows to deal with.

I just fished the miracle mile last week. Go early and late in the day. I managed about 5 or 6 browns to 16". (dry dropper rigs) You definitely do not need a float tube for any section of the river.

have fun, and make sure to talk with the guys at Ken's before you head out, they will set you up with what is working that time of the year.
