There is a new fire reported along Lower Rock Creek Road now named the "Rock Creek Fire". Fire is about 10 acres and CHP and fire crews are responding. Started about 1-2 hours ago.  No more info available for now.  Updates are being sent out on Twitter by Inyo National Forest and Sierra Wave.  Hope they get it under control soon.

Eastern Sierra Forum / Small Fire in Tuff Campground Sunday
« on: April 27, 2015, 07:47:54 PM »
So on Sunday after not catching much at the Owens, besides running into Retired96, my family left the Owens and ventured down to Tuff Campground...where we struck out again. My family was in the day use lot when my Dad noticed a fire coming from the campground.  The flames were at least 6 feet tall...which is not a good sign.  I went up to the road to see if someone was just having a crazy fire and saw no one around and realized a fire had broken out in one of the first campsites that was vacant. My Mom went to go find the host and I located someone's gallon of water in a camp spot and began to fight the fire. Luckily the water faucet was nearby so I was able to get enough water on the fire to contain it.  The fire had quickly spread to three large sage plants that were near a fire pit that was a blaze and not attended as the campers had just checked out and drove away.  Some guys finally stopped and brought over some dish pans and that was a huge help...thanks guys!  The host had called out the forces and by the time the fire trucks had arrived we had contained the fire. So to the campers that left the fire going, you will be getting a call from the Forest Service Fire Investigator, and a heafty fine.  To others, like Smokey says, only you can prevent Forest Fires.  This woud of been catastophic as absolutely no one was around and if we had not been at the right place at the right time, this could of been much worse.  I have rocks melted into my favorite pair of shoes, burnt a hole in my jeans and caught NO fish...but fought a Forest Fire and won so guess that counts for something. Please don't leave fires unattended!

Just wanted everyone to know that the road is now open all the way up past the lake to the pack station.  Rock Creek Lake is still frozen with some open areas along the shore.

Eastern Sierra Trip Reports / Rock Creek Lake
« on: June 09, 2014, 08:01:50 PM »
Spent a long weekend at the creek which was nice to get away from it all.  Since I can't hike or stream fish yet (still in a Cam Walker from surgery) we decided to sit at the lake.  While I did school my husband and my parents by catching over 12 fish...the fish were small.  We did catch a few that were 3/4lb or more but most of the fish were small...and skinny.  Fishing was dead slow in the morning and picked up at Noon with fish being caught just as fast as I could get my line in the water.  When the water was like glass, a fly (Rock Creek Special) on a bubble was the ticket.  When the wind picked up, then floating a worm off the bottom was the winner.  The water on the lake was at a good level and  the stream was also flowing really well despite the sad winter.

Eastern Sierra Trip Reports / Rock Creek this past weekend
« on: March 16, 2014, 09:58:40 PM »
Decided to take a trip up to the Canyon to check things out.  There was very little snow at the snow park so the gate was open. Here is the area near Palisade -

We were able to drive in to our cabin, with a little help from 4WD -

The cross-country ski area isnow a bit father up the road past the entrance to East Fork, where the road is closed due to snow.  Here is a pic of East Fork -

There was absolutely no snow down at Tom's Place and Holiday was open for camping.  We will see what Sping brings this year...

Eastern Sierra Forum / Rock Creek Road Still Open?
« on: November 23, 2013, 05:46:38 PM »
Anyone know if the road up to the lake is still open?  Just wondering if there has been enough snow yet to close the road at the Snow Park yet.  Was going to make a trip up if the road was still open.

Anything Goes / Website Issues?
« on: April 29, 2013, 10:12:48 AM »
I have been unable to access the Rockcreeklake.com site via AOL and Internet Explorer for the past week.  Were there some changes to the server?  The only way I can access the site is via my computer at work, which uses Windows Internet Explorer so can't figure this out. Both AOL and IE give me an error message for an invalid website, so can't figure out the problem.  Looks like some have been posting to the Board and have not had any issues.  My email @rockcreeklake.com is not working either so perhaps there is an issue somewhere.

Eastern Sierra Trip Reports / Week at the Creek May 28 - June 4
« on: June 08, 2012, 09:11:06 PM »
We had a nice week at the creek last week. The weather was great after low's in the 20's over Memorial Day Weekend.  We left just in time as the weather was going to dip down into the 20's.  So if you are going up, be prepared for everything...even snow at this point. Iris Meadow was still closed when we left...so who knows when it will open.

We fished up at the Lake from the shore three different days and caught beyond our limits (catch and release) all three days!  The best bait was a bubble and a fly and...pink salmon egg power bait?  Now, we don't usually use powerbait but at times when nothing else works we will give it a shot.  We tried and tried and then I had these pink powerbait ball things...OMG!  The first day we went thru one jar!  It was so crazy we actually stopped fishing with them because it was just too easy.  So I am definately stocking up on those things. 

The mosquitos were hatching, so be prepared.  The water level is also already low and is where it usually would be around August...so I can only imagine what it will actually look like come August. 

There is a new sporting goods store down in Bishop...Reagan's Sporting Goods.  They have a pretty good set up and sell fishing licences!  They are located in the old Napa, next to the Starbuck's.  Nice folks, so if you like to support the locals then make a stop. 

Topped off the trip with a big slice of Mud Pie  :pie2:
