Eastern Sierra Trip Reports / 22nd-24th trip
« on: February 26, 2014, 11:26:44 AM »
Hey guys and gals! I went up to the Bishop area this past weekend and wanted to share a few things with you. It was more of a family trip than a full fishing trip, but i still managed to get some good fishing in. We arrived in bishop saturday around noon. After checking into our hotel we shot over to lower owens off chalk bluff road. I fished there for about 3 hours and landed 3 nice browns in the 10-12 inches range.

Sunday we went up the hill to upper owens. I landed 2 decent rainbows in about 2 hours and I had a few missed fished.

We also shot over to hot creek for about an hour. I didn't catch anything, but i had 4 nice bites working a streamer just before leaving.

We then checked out mcgee creek. The creek was low and you can see there wasn't much snow up there. No fish.

Now you can't go up there without stopping by Rock Creek!!! We tried to drive all the way to the lake, but the little snow that was there managed to close the road right at east fork. We just messed with the snow there and down at palisades.

Sunday morning I hit the power plant hard for about 3 hours before shooting back to checkout. This was definitely the hottest fishing! It took an hour for me to find what they wanted and then it was bite after bite. I ended up landing 5 trout including a nice 1lb 10 oz rainbow. I had alot of bites though!

Overall, it was a perfect weekend trip.

Eastern Sierra Forum / Tamarack Lakes

Does anyone know the actual distance from the Tamarack trailhead at RCL to Tamarack lakes? One guy told me it was 3 miles, but it seemed way longer. I also had all of my gear on, including my waders, so that might have made it seem longer. It almost looks like 5ish on google maps, not factoring in twist and turns.

Anything Goes / Boat Project

I finally got my project boat back together, so I took it out to mission bay for a test drive. It still needs a few cosmetic fixes, but it runs great.



On the bay today

Eastern Sierra Forum / Trailer Camping
« on: February 18, 2013, 07:44:25 PM »
Hi everyone! I've been going to Rock Creek since i was 3 with my family and we've always stayed in a tent. I didn't expected to have a trailer anytime soon, so I never paid attention to the trailer life up there. The opportunity came up and now I have a 99 f250 SD extended cab long bed and a 29ft alpenlite 5th wheel. We like camping towards the middle of the mountain. I think I should have no problem getting into iris meadow, but what do you think my chances are of fitting into big meadow? I was also hoping you guys could start a collection of trailer tips for me because I'm completely new to it. Places to fill up and dump? Propane if i run out? The rules on running a generator? Common courtesies? And anything else you think will help :clap: Thanks
