Fishing in Idyllwild
Fishing in and around Idyllwild is a fun activity for the whole family. Two local lakes offer two different experiences.
Lake Hemet is owned and operated by the Lake Hemet Municipal Water District and is the largest lake in the area. It is stocked with rainbow trout by the State Department of Fish and Game and is the home to natural channel catfish, big-mouth bass, and bluegill.
Lake Fulmor is a 2-acre lake on Forest service property and offers good trout fishing during the spring, summer, and fall. This serene spot is located adjacent to Highway 243 about 10 miles north of Idyllwild. The lake provides day use activities for the public. Fishing and picnic areas with grills, an a scenic trail which crosses a bridge, and beautiful surroundings make this an enjoyable spot for locals and tourists alike. A parking area is located across the highway for lake, but use caution when crossing the 2 lane highway. You do need an Adventure or Recreation Pass to park.
