Bill, the East Walker will be worth a trip if last Saturday is any indicator. After some morning quail hunting I hit the Elbow around noon. In about 2 and a half hours, I caught and released about 10 rainbows and browns between about 12 and 16 inches and all of them out of the same run! The fish are...

The San Joaquin is accessed via a paved, but narrow, road. You could easily get there in with a 2wd vehicle. The road is closed during the day excect to shuttle traffic and those with camp spots, but I think those restrictions only apply in the summer. You should be able to find those closure rules ...

Reminds me to throw a few trash bags in my vest and the pocket of my kickboat for such emergencies.

Nice little outing, nevertheless. 8)

LADave, I always have wanted to get up there. They are just a little too far from my house for a day trip. Maybe this year I will finally make the overnighter.

Very nice. I took the time to look at them again. Those pictures go right to the middle of the fishing part of my brain :D

Paul, awesome pictures. I love that castle! I wish we still had grayling up in Lobdell Lake. Too bad they were lost. Anyway, looks like an amazing place to fish! By the way, you can post the pics by using the IMG tags. You can either type the tags or there is a button in the reply window. The link s...

Ya, if you add a few flies all you need is your rod and reel and you're fishing. A little bigger box and an inexpensive rod and reel might be all you need to keep in your truck emergencies. :wink:

Nymphing Kit

While flipping through my Cabela's catalog, I ran across a nymphing kit they were selling. It was a small flybox full of weights, indicators, etc. I thought this beat the heck out of having all that junk spread throught my vest in a dozen different boxes, bags and such. Plus it is portable. If I am ...

According the the Reno Fly Shop, the lake is fishing pretty slow. As the water cools the fishing should turn on. Even when its fishing well, it still seems to be feast or famine. One day you could fish for hours with hardly a strike and the next you can't keep them off your flies. Other times the gu...

Pyramid Lake

Another article in my astounding series of Nevada waters :roll: Pyramid Lake is located about 35 miles or so north of Reno and is where the Truckee River goes to die. Pyramid is nearly as large as Lake Tahoe and the lake is well known for its stark beauty and summer water sports. But nothing can ove...

No apologies needed Richard. Doesn't hurt to make sure everyone knows about the NZMS. I was actually wondering how Tim Alper's, not to mention the Hot Creek Hatchery, prevents the spread of the snails. Since fish can ingest the snails and pass them unharmed if some were ingested they could be spread...

Thanks for the info. I have been looking for Alper's site. I drove by the ranch while fishing Rush Creek and I noticed the cabins looked a little rough. The attraction is the Owen's river and Alper's creek. I can get in some technical flyfishing while the kids can get some fishing in too without hav...

Alper's Owens River Ranch

While planning next summers vacation (never to early to plan for vacation), I thought renting a cabin in the Sierras would be a good idea. After doing some looking around I remembered Alpers Ranch. Seems like a good place to stay what with the Owen's River (Which my youngest will be thrilled to fish...

I am sure I have been to one in Portola, but I might be thinking of Quincy. I did a little searching and came up with a couple of possibilities: Dollards Market or Gold Rush Sporting Goods 196 E Sierra St Portola, CA 96122-8412 (530) 832-5724 Not sure if either is a full service flyshop, but better ...

I second what Keith says. Don't believe all the beeps you get are fish. But then again I have cast towards the fish (I have a side finder unit) and hooked up before too.
