First Fish(s) of 2006

I hit a local, creepy spot on Saturday morning, solo-style. Got up at the crack of 6:00AM, had a beautiful drive to the location (I could clearly see the outlines of Mts. San Jacinto and San Gorgonio in the citrus-tinged morning light), parked my junky car, rigged up, and hit that mofo! Utilizing a ...

"Picture This..." -- A Link to a Short Story

I've written a short story for the http://www.smallstreams.com Granger Bamboo Creative Writing Contest. The story is about a local watershed here in the Los Angeles area. If you'd like to read it, here's a link: http://www.smallstreams.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=294 Thanks in advance to anyone who ta...

Re: Why Are You Torturing Me, LADave?

LADave, you are driving me insane, what with your talk of wild trout in the White Mountains, and now the Whitewater River on the north slope of San Gorgonio mountain. Those happen to be two locations that I have been drooling over for years now. Coincidentally, not two days ago I was instant messagi...

As Promised, Some Pictures....

Here's an image of a normally TINY side-canyon floodplain: http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y109/hmbldzy/019_16.jpg Actually in the main canyon floodplain: http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y109/hmbldzy/004_1.jpg This was an incredibly deep run: http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y109/hmbldzy/007_4.jpg...

Thanks Matt...

Thank you, Matt, not only for attending the meeting and bringing my "Save Middle Piru" letter along, but for your post-meeting report as well. I owe you one. Maybe when you take me to Karen's private creek, I can return the favor somehow. Anyway, I have sent "Save Middle Piru" letters to several age...

Local Stream Trip Report

Tuesday morning, April 5, 2005, dawned crystal clear, with mild spring temps and no trace of a breeze. I got a relatively late start – I left the house at 8:30AM – which would cost me some potential fishing opportunities, as I would determine later. I was not as stringent about my start time as I us...

Piru Recon -- Isn't It Time?

So, with the flows at the Piru Hardluck gage FINALLY dropping to a somewhat reasonable 175+/- CFS of late, I think it's time for a little recon to the general area. I've noticed -- through reports here and elsewhere -- that the local stream action is, in fact, picking up a bit. This recent spate of ...

Wow...

Wow.....really nice fish! I am assuming these came out of a lake somewhere in in Southern California -- at least let me know if I am right about that! The current SoCal stream action -- or, more precisely, the lack thereof -- seems highly unlikely to produce monsters like yours under these wacky hig...

Southern California Stream Updates, Anyone?

Does anyone have any first-hand information on what's going on with the local streams, post-torrential rains? I realize it's still very muddy out there, and extremely high water levels present in all drainages, and I understand if no one's really had the bad sense to venture out into the brush, but ...

Sespe Creek Ten Sycamore Flat -- Steelhead Sighting?

Many years ago – 1992, possibly 1991, I can’t remember – I spent 3 days on Sespe Creek in the middle of the month of March. God, was it ever beautiful. A significant winter storm had hit Southern California the week before, and the Topatopa mountains (a spectacular 2000”+ solid wall of banded cliffs...

Sierra "Triple Crown" Trip Report - Part 2

Continued from Part 1.... The next morning, Tuesday, May 18th, found me breaking camp (and wind) at around 6:30AM, fishing the So. Fork of the Kern close to camp "one last time", then heading back down out of the mountains, eastbound, to the valley floor and highway 395, where I headed north to Lone...
