Eastern Sierra Forum / Geology of the Sierra's
« on: October 10, 2013, 04:40:29 PM »
Found a interesting book (more so after a few beers) titled "Geologic Trips Sierra Nevada", Ted Konigsmark...ISBN 0- 9661316-5-7 that describes

the geology of the Sierras including the Long Valley volcano that contributed to the physical structure of the Owens Valley. The caldera (yeah, I

googled that word) is still volcanically active and providing heat for the hot springs and hot creeks.

Eastern Sierra Fishing / Fly Rods
« on: September 04, 2013, 04:42:25 PM »
Info for those of us who need one more fly rod: Redington has discontinued their CT (Classic Trout) series and replacement will be the new Tempt

series. Cabela's is closing them out @ $99.00 ea. including a hardcase carrier. No sales tax or shipping. I bought a 5 Wt 8.5 4pc. and I noticed

a variety of weights available. Advertised as a med. to fast action, great finish and feel, I can hear those Brookies calling @ Long Lake.

Eastern Sierra Fishing / Rock Creek
« on: August 05, 2013, 03:36:52 PM »
I'm new to Rock Creek area having "discovered"this beautiful eastside gem. When I first hiked the Little Lakes Valley trail I couldn't decide

whether to hike or fish. I soon got my priorities in order and started fishing Mack thu Box Lake with great little brook trout hitting. I'm heading

up to this area the week of Sept. 22nd and would appreciate any suggestions on Golden Trout streams or lakes on the east side that are

reachable in a day hike, 6 miles or so RT. ( yeah I walk slow, rehabbing from a meniscus knee tear) Wshawkins was kind enough to suggest

some hikes in the Tioga Pass area for rainbows and any GT info. would be put to good use. PM me if you wish, I practice C&R, barbless.

Thank you
