Spent a week up highway 395 North (Bishop, Mammoth Lakes etc). Took lots of native Brown trout as well as Calif Dept of Fish & Game stocked Rainbows. Size 16 Parachute Adams seemed best. Good fishing! It's nice that there is a sustainable population of native trout and that you don't have to rely on a stock truck. Catch & release barbless flies is the way to enjoy and maintain this! Fish on!

No pictures?  This is 2019 ... everybody has a camera, no?

No, I never carry a camera when fishing, and no, my cell doesn't do pictures (my wife thinks my phone dates back to the 1800's).


Sometimes I need expert advice which is why I talk to myself.

One of Wife's favorite sayings (so, it's one of mine, too), "If there's no pictures, it didn't happen."

 

I'm joking, of course ... but it's why I photo or video every fishing trip.  Proof, if I ever catch that "big one".

Have a friend of mine & his nephew making their way along 395 this Week, exploring all of the fishing options. They'll also make a stop @ Manzanar, looking to tap into the karma of The Manzanar Fishing Club.

What, as if the internet is not already cluttered enough with self-serving egotistical hero shots?

 

And no one is going to comment about the phrase "native Brown trout"?  That one always makes me chuckle.

 

Dave_L:   Thanks for the report.  There certainly is a lot of good water around Bishop and Mammoth.  Must be hot down there this time of year.
