Calaveras Big Trees State Park is named for the spectacular giant sequoia trees – the largest trees in the world – that were first discovered here. Once the world knew of their existence, demand to see the GIANT SEQUOIAS was immediate. Tourists began arriving at the Calaveras North Grove by 1853, and historians believe that the North Grove is the longest continuously operating tourist attraction in California, and perhaps anywhere west of the Mississippi.

Local Fishing Spots
With a dozens of fabulous lakes, rivers and mountain streams, Ebbetts Pass has plenty of great locations to fish. Low elevation lakes such as White Pines Lake near Arnold have bass, while most of the rest are trout waters. For those who like to fish from a boat Spicer, Union, and Utica reservoirs along with Lake Alpine make great destinations. Fly fishermen are drawn to the East Carson River and the Stanislaus River. For more ideas about fishing in Alpine County and up and down the Sierra, see Dave's Sierra Fishing.
White Pines Lake is a nice place to spend a restful day fishing. No motorized boats are allowed on the lake, but little hand-launched fishing boats, float tubes, canoes, and kayaks are perfect for the small lake. The lake is home to both trout and bass. Among the best places for bass fishing in the lake is around the tulles. Snag-proof frogs work well there. White Pines Lake is a quiet little lake, well known to local residents, but often overlooked by visitors scurrying up to Big Trees State Park or Lake Alpine. Only a mile from Arnold, the lake makes a great family destination for fishing, picnicking, or just taking the kids to a playground. For hikers, mountain bikers, and equestrians, the new Arnold Rim Trail leads south from the lake 10.5 miles to Sheep Ranch Road near Avery. The area around White Pines Lake was originally a lumber mill. After the mill was closed a dam was put in and a lake established with thoughts of selling lots around the lake. When the plan fell through , the lake and surrounding property were sold to the Calaveras Water District.

Spicer Reservoir is legendary for its beautiful 12 to 18 inch rainbow trout that shore anglers target in the spring after the Spicer Reservoir Road becomes accessible and in the fall just before the first snows arrive. The fish are the progeny of fingerlings that the CDFW plants and wild fish that spawn in the creek.

Sourgrass and Boards Crossing The Boards Crossing Road from Dorrington leads down to the Sourgrass bridge crossing of the North Fork of the Stanislaus River. Fish and Game regularly plant rainbow trout here. There is a campground and day use area there with restrooms. Fishing in the river is good both up and down stream. The best fishing is in the late summer and early fall when the peak runoff has passed and tantalizing pools begin to appear along the river. The actual Boards Crossing is found by following an unmarked dirt road that leaves the main road about a mile from Dorrington. For a map of the area and camping information, see Sourgrass Campgrounds.

Situated at the edge of the Carson-Iceberg Wilderness, Lake Alpine is one of the most beautiful of the lakes found in the Ebbetts Pass region and Alpine County. Any time you throw a bait, spinner, or fly into the lake’s usually cold waters you could hook a trophy rainbow, since huge trout up to 9 pounds roam the waters of this reservoir. However, smaller fish make up the majority of the catches, particularly after the California Department of Fish and Wildlife stocks the lake.

Spicer, Utica, and Union Reservoirs All three reservoirs are stocked with rainbow trout and have grown to be among the area's most popular fishing locations. A paved launch ramp and ample parking lot make Spicer the favorite for anglers with larger boats, but both Utica and Union have unimproved dirt ramps that can facilitate launching lighter boats. There is a 5 - 10 MPH speed limit on all the lakes. The upper part of Spicer is closed to motorized boats. Spicer, Utica, and Union Reservoirs Spicer Reservoir has Eagle Lake trout and brook trout along with a Spicer Reservoir strain of Kamloops-cutbows. Hobart Creek, which feeds into Spicer, is closed to fishing until July 1 in order to protect spawning trout.
