Anything Goes / Trash Clean up Day on the East Fork of the San Gabriel
« on: October 01, 2013, 01:26:27 PM »
This past weekend my buddy Andrew and I did a trash cleanup day along the East Fork of the San Gabriel river.  It was put on by this guy Alan, who is known by his YouTube name Pharroah. Great times and lots of trash picked up.

Here is the video I put together.

I just thought some of you would like to see the flash flood we caught on video last week.  ABC world news actually used part of my video as well.

Trip Reports from Elsewhere / Cucamonga Wilderness 8/17/2013
« on: August 21, 2013, 11:30:14 AM »
My buddy Andrew and I decided to hike back in to one of the forks of  Ltyle Creek this past weekend.  We were in search of some new fishing spots off the beaten path and found some. I was amazed at the wild trout we found and how they are surviving.  It was sureal.  This was meant to be an overnight trip, but instead we turned into a day trip as we were not going to summit Cucamonga peak this day.
The Hike in.

One of the down trees that you have to go under.

After stopping for lunch along one of the creeks.  We noticed what may be a side canyon which we decided to go explore.  I am sure glad we did.  Found some nice pools with wild fish.  You could tell this place does not have much traffic in there.  No trash till the very end.  No beaten trail into it either.

As we set down our packs and got our fishing gear ready, we noticed on the way up that we both broke our tips of our rods.

As we gone further and further up the canyon we found fish in a lot of the pools.  Nothing big, but they were wild trout and fun to catch.  All fish were caught on barbless minijigs and handled with care.

Andrew trying with the lower portion of his rod, since the top portion snapped.

So after fishing and exploring the canyon for a while.  We decided to make a break and head to the campground and eat a little something.  From here we decided that we would camp down below, but that would be a mistake as it was much hotter down there, and the trail we decided to take back to the other campsite was over grown halfway down with poison ivy and poisonous nettle.  At that point we had to backtrack to the main trail and thatís when we decided we would just pack out that day.

Not much trash at all on the trail till the very top of the canyon by the main waterfall.  Someone left their dame floaties and a beach ball!

Trip Reports from Elsewhere / Utah Memorial Day Weekend 2013
« on: July 29, 2013, 12:54:03 PM »
I have been wanting to share this report for a while.  I went to Utah for Memorial Day weekend with Andrew.  If you want locations feel free to PM and Iím down to share.  The trip was more of an exploratory trip with some sightseeing involved as well. The first two days we fished wind played a major factor, however on Monday the fishing was off the hook once the wind was gone.  Iím just going to post up some pics for your enjoyment. 

Here is the first day.  We did some sightseeing on the way up and took our time getting there, but 4x4 in to our campsite which was at 10,500í.  What is nice is all the wilderness camping available here.

Second day to lakes we had to 4x4 up into and then our campsite the 2nd night.  This was our first day fishing and got into beautiful areas away from all of the crowds.  Saw lots of signs of wildlife up here too.

The third day we did some more sightseeing on our way back to our bread and butter lake which we would fish on Memorial Day morning.  Got to test Andrewís new jeep out to the limits!

On the last day we hit one of our favorite lakes for one of the most wide open bites I have ever seen.  There was a hatch of mosquitoes and gnats going off and the fish were hitting everything.  I lost about a 3# brown right at the shore, while Andrew managed a beautiful tiger trout that was 3.5#.  The majority of the fish I caught here were all cutthroats and they do fight hard! On the way back we stopped at Brian Head for some amazing views!

On the way home we went the long way around Baker by going down to the 40 through Vegas.  Even though it was longer, it was better than sitting in traffic for the same amount of time.

Eastern Sierra Fishing / Boulder Mountain UTAH?
« on: May 22, 2013, 02:46:23 PM »
Not sure if this would be the best place to put this down or not. 

Does anyone have any information on fishing Boulder Mountain in Utah?  Heading over there for this Memorial Day weekend for some Brooks, Cutts, Tigers, Splakes, and Grayling.  Should be a blast and i'll have a full report up for you guys once back.

Eastern Sierra Trip Reports / Weekend Bishop Trip 3/23-3/25
« on: March 28, 2013, 08:40:48 AM »
Left  at 2  to head up to bishop.  Stopped for gas and then  stopped at the Indian casino  in independence.

Great way to start the trip! made it to Bishop by 6,  and after breakfast will head to PVR.

Started at PVR and caught a lot of fish easily a 40-50+ fish day.

After fishing PVR we went back into town and checked into the hotel.  After resting for a bit we hit up the lower owens, but missed the few hits we had.

Tried a new mexican restaurant on the way out of town heading north.  Place wasn't good at all.  Slow service, medicore food, and they only had one restroom.

The next morning we thought we would try the Upper Owens and on the way stopped at Tom's place for breakfast!  Best Country fried steak ever!

We then headed over to Hot Creek and the Upper Owens.

Finished up the night at Holy Smokes BBQ.  Food was great, but service was slow and the restroom was very dirty.

Monday morning we headed out and as I was checking out I saw this onthe back of a van.

On the way out we hit up a couple spots and found a new spot to try that most people pass by everytime on the way up.

It was a fun trip and great to get away.  No big ones this time, but there is still a lot left in PVR.

Eastern Sierra Fishing / Bishop Creek Canyon 9/14-9/15
« on: September 16, 2012, 10:24:51 PM »
Tried to take today off, but the boss wanted me at the office for an hour. So after our meeting I was on the road at 9. I got into bishop around 1:15 and was at Intake 2 by 2.

My friends were  out on their tubes and slaying the fish. I tossed a Zspoon and C&R About 5 fish in 20 minutes.

I then hit up south lake and released about 25+ fish on zspoons and Sierra slammers.

Got a wake up text from Andrew telling me to get my lazy butt up and meet them at Denny's however I slept in and went with the buddy's I was staying with to South Lake after the great bite the day before and it didn't disappoint.

Arrived at South lake by 7:30 and promptly started to fill my tube, however as I was about to head out I heard a small leak and had to scratch tubing.  I thought my day was ruined, but it was a blessing in disguise!

I worked the rocks by the dam at South Lake and got into another Epic bite on jigs.  Easily caught 30+ fish before I decided to try and find Andrew and his buddy Mike.  I left and made the stop at Intake 2 and sure enough found the two.

We decided to go to North Lake which turned out to have a great metal bite, and Andrew was the hot stick there.  He had a fish or a bite on every cast for a while.  Nothing was safe from Andrew here!  :happy::happy::happy:

For lunch we stopped at Lake Sabrina and I had a patty melt and some pie.  The PIE was great!

After lunch I talked the both of them to hit up South lake.  At first the bite was slow, with a fish every 5 minutes or so.  Even found a lure and tossed it out and got hit on it.  It was a crawdad crankbait.

As the sun started to go behind the clouds, the bite picked up.  The fishing was on fire then.  At one point Andrew filmed the hot action and I got 3 fish in a minute, and mike having another one to make 4 in a minute.  Might have been one of the best bites I have been in this year.  Just amazing, but the fish wanted only jigs, and natural colors too, no pink, chartreuse, orange, or metal.  Can't wait to see that video.

As the sun was setting I decided to head back down and head home Saturday night instead of Sunday during the day.  Made it back home before 11 and was able to sleep in a nice comfy bed.

Here are some pictures as well as a 360 view of North lake.

Trip Reports from Elsewhere / Jenks lake Report 8-18-2012
« on: August 20, 2012, 10:33:01 AM »
Met up with Andrew around 7:00 and by the time we left and filled our tubes at Jenks Lake we were on the water by 8:15.  We left the lake around noon. It was an interesting day on Jenks with about 10 other float tubers out here.  Fish were down deep and had to be fished slow.  Hot baits for me were jigs and trout worms.  C&R 10 trout up to about a pound and 1 small bass.  There was also 2 bald eagles up there hanging out and got to see one of them circle a few times before coming down and catching a trout.  One the way back got into a couple thunderstorms, but nothing heavy like the past few days.  There was reports that earlier in the week a man was hit by lightning and had to be airlifted out.

And whatís a trip to Jenks without stopping at Seven Oaks for a bite to eat.  Let go of the diet for one day, and for everyone who has not been here yet.  Itís time to stop and have a burger up there!

Eastern Sierra Trip Reports / Memorial Day 2012 Trip!
« on: June 01, 2012, 11:38:13 PM »
Updated Report:

This trip I brought my girlfriend Jenn and along as she likes to camp, and it wasnít a guys trip like past memorial days.  Jenn and I left Friday and after making a few stops made it to Rock Creek around 4, and found out campsite at East Fork, #108.  Surprisingly it had a lot of room.  A very nice camp site and would come back again.  As we set up camp, there was some snow flurries and the temps were dropping.  Later on that night the flurries came on a little stronger and we got a good amount of snow over night.  I believe Chris said his carís temp was 17 degrees that night.  Over night the pipes froze and the bathrooms in camp were not able to be used till the next night.

Saturday we took it easy and I fished the creek after having breakfast at Tomís place.(The best Chicken Fried Steak ever!)   Caught a few in the creek and after making some lunch we headed up the lake and also to the trailhead at mosquito flats to check it out.  The trailhead was about half full, with the snow coming down hard.  We then went down to the lake which I fished for about half hour.  As it was a cold night I suggested to go to Mammoth to check it out and get dinner there.  ;)  When I got to Mamie, the snow was also coming down hard there, so we drove around and just did some sightseeing, before ending up at Grumpyís for dinner.  BTW they have some very very very good burgers there!  Got back to camp and had some fun around the camp fire.

Sunday Jenn and I woke up and went to take a shower at the resort.  The bathrooms are small, but for the rice they canít be beat.$3 got us about 10 minutes.  After getting back to camp we went for the Little Lakes Valley hike.  All I have to say is it was amazing!  Even though you start off at 10,000í, the hike is relatively easy.  We took our time and made it all the way to Long Lake.  If I would have known Chickenfoot was so close, we would have went there.  The weather was great with hardly any wind.  I only fished three lakes, Marsh, Heart and Long Lake and caught a ton of Brooks out of them all.  Iíll post up the video Iím working on hopefully next week.

Monday we packed up early and headed out with the intention of making a few stops.  One was Manzanar, as she had never gone, and I havenít been since they redid it.  If you havenít stopped, do so as it is a great place to learn some history.  We also stopped at Fossil Falls, which was also a great stop for sightseeing.

All in all it was a great trip, with lots of adventure!  Also got to use my new cooler for the first time and it performed well.  Even though it was cold, I only had to use one bag of ice.  Canít wait for the next trip!

Eastern Sierra Fishing / Opener Report!
« on: April 30, 2012, 08:59:28 AM »
Drove up after work on Friday night and arrived into Bishop around 8:45.  Had a great dinner at Dennyís then went to the campsite at Millpond to set up. Went back in town to get supplies at Vons and then crashed out.


Was up early around 7 and made some breakfast as we took the day easy.   


Just relaxed most of the day. Fished at PVR and only caught one, but  hooked into many more.  A 6# hook jaw. Caught on a Siberian Tiger Zspoon. Missed a few on jigs. Cooked some steak for dinner and decided to fish Intake 2 at midnight.



Fished Intake 2 right at midnight with some glow in the dark lures, but couldnít get the fish to bite like last year. Also not as many people at Intake 2 at midnight, unlike last year in worse weather it was shoulder to shoulder.
Started the morning at Lundy. C&R 50+ each in this area between Andrew and I. Biggest was about 2.5#.

Next went to Silver and Gull for a few bites, but left because of the slow action.

Next stop was Convict but just a couple short bites.

Next stop was Rock creek for a few wild browns.

Last stop was Lake Sabrina for another 30+ fish each.

Woke up early and broke camp and headed back to Sabrina to release another 20+ fish.  Took our time driving back home and tried 2 sand traps, but they were corwded or fished out.  Did stop at the Mt. Whitney Ranger station to get some info on some hikes we would be taking later on in the year.
All in all it was a great trip, with light crowds for an opener, and tons of fish to be caught.

The view of the road going to where we will be hiking in July.

Video of the big fish!
