so cal

I would be forced to give this advice: Move Back! :shock: Seriously :roll:A bit cold right now in the local mountains. Fish are quite lethargic. Maybe if we get a warming trend for a week or so you might have some luck through winter; otherwise, it's gonna be tough. Move Back!

I know that place...huge fish. It's the Lower Santa Ana near where it feeds the River Lakes. There's trout in there called "Lloyds." Shshshsh. :shock:

Jawbone Creek

Greetings all. I've been dying to get back to this watershed; so, my good friend LARiver and I dropped down the trailess Transverse Range hillside to thick vegetation, and cool running water to visit the critters that inhabit this region. Hence the name: http://duroroller.com/jawbone.jpg My guess is...

Greetings. I thought I'd add a few of my faves to this post:

This occured throughout the day for us both. It was indeed a memorable local jaunt with many of these:

Local Gorge Report

Well, let's try this report thing again. Although an attempt at a return visit to the location in my previous post failed due to navigational difficulty (I think the place disappeared, or the entire trek was a hallucinatory event), a friend and I did manage a very successful jaunt into a mini gorge ...

"Loco" Troutin'

Greetings: I have not posted here in a long time for various reasons: however, my Friday excursion deep into a rugged, seldom fished canyon must be shared. I never thought of myself as egocentric. The inspiration for the naming of this post, "Loco" Troutin', is borrowed from a fellow "extreme trout ...

I doubt you could find fish like that in California, yet alone SoCal....unless......well, you know....you had a rainbow glitter fly :shock: . Nice fish though, I wonder where they're headed next?

pass

Exactly. I usually do not buy a pass, heck, I own property very close to places I would park to hike/fish. I pay enough taxes. The "Adventure Pass" has never deterred my sudden willingness to venture about. It is a joke. Even the name is insulting to me. "Adventure!" Please. Fishing is deeply embedd...

adventure pass

Anthony, thank you.
However, in all honesty, it doesn't matter. If you fly fish....you hike. Therefore, you park, then you hike and do not worry of any other issues. Adventure Pass? Please. Do the research, you are a smart young man.....Joe

Sespe

Kerry, nice story, thank you. In April 2001 there was an article in the OC Register entitled "Steel Away." It was the story of a creek that held offspring of the Southern Steelhead, "firecracker" 10" trout that would exlode on your dry fly, as the author put it. The area spoken of in the article is ...
