Eastern Sierra Fishing / Tips for locating some fish
« on: August 13, 2017, 07:30:29 PM »
Hello fellas,

I am returning to Yosemite for a trip in early September. Wife and I took a trip out to Tahoe last September and only had time for a day in Yosemite. This time we are returning for 4 and a half days and I am bringing my fly rod this time. I was wondering if you guys could give me some advice on some best options/chances for landing some fish while I am there. I will be dragging my wife along, and I will of course have to accomodate everything she wants to do in Yosemite so I can't do too many long hikes to fishing spots (looking for relatively easily accessed areas)and I must make time for quality time with her obviously. :-) I do want to at least hike up and hit middle Gaylor Lake. And I really want to fit in the Cathedral Lakes hike. We will be staying in Half Dome Village. So if you guys have any advice on specific areas on the Merced in the Valley. Or anywhere else I would have a good chance I'd be forever grateful. I am new to fly fishing and I have never caught a trout on my fly rod. I've caught blue gil, crappie, and Large Mouth bass here in Virginia, but no trout yet and I am itching to catch one. I will be releasing all fish. Is Tenaya Lake an option for a good shot at landing a fish or two? I'm ordering some barbless flies to take along. I don't have any of those as we do not have to use those here in Virginia. We are also staying 2 days in Mammoth, on Lake Mary before heading up to Lake Tahoe for 4 days to end our trip. Thanks in advance and love the site!
