Huntington is a high mountain lake with German brown trout, rainbow trout, and kokanee salmon. Fly fishing is good along the northern shore near creek inlets. Both trolling and shore fishing are successful at Huntington. Usually the best fishing is before 10:00 AM.
Shore anglers like the area around Billy Creek and the inlet at Home Camp Creek, along with the south side of the point at the Dowville Picnic Area. Also good are both sides of the upper end of the lake, either at Rancheria Campground or across at College Campground.
The two coves by Big Creek are known for good fishing from boats. Deep water north of the island and around to dams 1 and 2 are popular trolling waters. Sometimes fishing is good around Rock Island.

Dave's Sierra Fishing gives details about two great fishing destinations in the nearby John Muir Wilderness. For an unforgettable overnight backpacking destination, try Graveyard Lakes. Or if you have a 4-wheel vehicle to negotiate the last 2 miles into Bear Creek Diversion Dam, you won't find better stream fishing than along Bear Creek.
