Eastern Sierra Fishing / Re: Sawmill Lake

There are two that I'm aware of in Ca., the Sawmill Lake near the Sawmill Pass or the Tahoe area lake?

Eastern Sierra Fishing / Re: October Caddis Hatch

Thanks for the insight, flyfishing for couple of years, still @ a learning curve. Never thought to match the hatch with two different stages of the caddis development.

I emailed Saddlebag Resort last Sunday regarding 2014 closing schedule, Steve Ernst emailed back they are closing the end of Sept. Just checked their website, shows Sept. 28th closing date. Taxi running 8-5 after Labor Day.

Warren, Yeah this is doable for me as a day hike. Will put this on my "after Labor Day list." Thanks, Larry

Are we discussing the Golden Lakes (upper and/or lower) in Humphreys Basin? Thanks

Eastern Sierra Fishing / Re: Backpacking a Float Tube
« on: July 20, 2014, 03:12:03 PM »
Yeah I've got to get a tube. From the research I've done Outcast @ seems to be the biggest bang for the money, website has a great comparison article on the different models of Outcast. Outcast has a backpacking model out called the Trinity that weighs in about 7 lbs with a 300lb. capacity. Most of the Outcast tubes weigh about 15 lb., good for a day hike but I would like to shave off as much weight  so I could cover more ground.(which means more lakes to fish) Force Fins seem to be the way to go for the best brand in fins.

Eastern Sierra Trip Reports / Re: Snow white opener

Thanks for the report. A 17" & 19" rainbow is decent with water temps down that low and muddy water. You provided a nice fix until I can get up there.

Thanks for the info on the Tamarack Lakes area, I'll try Francis Lake this year

Per the Tom Harrison Mono Divide High Country trail map it is 4.9 miles from the Rock lake campground to Tamarack Lake. That's a tough hike in waders and waderboots. Are Francis, Kenneth or Dorothy lakes fishy? Also, published distance is not always accurate.

Caddisjb, Per a Tom Harrison topo map, it looks like a demanding hike. Appreciate any info. you find on these lakes

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.

Impressive volume of water in a amazing short period of time, Thanks

« on: September 04, 2013, 04:59:43 PM »
Per the National Geographic map, Yosemite NE #308 from the TH south side (west side?) is 1.6 miles each way to Greenstone with a very easy

trail around Saddlebag. Also, thanks for the update on the water taxi, this gives me a chance to adjust my plans.

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.

« on: August 06, 2013, 05:24:42 PM »
Thank you all for the imput. Saudust, is this the Walker Lake thu Sawmill or Bloody Canyon? (bet there is a great tale how the name Bloody Canyon came

about) And Cottonwood Lakes are something to consider this year, could always do a overnighter. FYI, great article on Leavitt Meadow in the August

2013 issue of the California Fly Fisher. In that area I like to park @ Pickel Meadows and fish downstream on the West Walker, toward Hy. 395 for some

good wide open casting.

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

Re: some of Ralph Cutter's ( I'm guessing he is out of Truckee area) writings on flys, very simple and informative. (just the way I like it)
