Grant Lake Fishing

The largest and only man made lake on the loop is stocked regularly. There are many dirt roads along the back side to pull up to the lake and fish right where you park. Keep in mind LADWP controls the water level, and it is not uncommon that the lake level will vary, so be careful how close you park to the shore line. Always remember your mountain manners and do not leave trash or your poop next to the lake. Properly bury your personal defecation. Please help keep this area clean. There is also very little cell phone reception out there, so plan accordingly.  If you need any  last minute provisions, don’t forget to check out Grant Lake Marina!


Grant Lake is located closest to the North Entrance on HWY 158

Fish Tips

Check out where Rush Creek enters the lake, stay in the peninsula area, or in the narrows by the marina. Rent a boat from Grant Lake. Or simply select one of the multiple dirt roads around Grant to get your favorite shore spot.
