Eastern Sierra Trip Reports / Re: A Hidden Gem in Mammoth Lakes
« on: February 07, 2018, 02:28:57 AM »
"Iím an oddity in this group as Iím clearly a fisherman, so I get the strange looks which Iím used to."
I hike with 93% fishing in mind; I know the feeling.  That trail is heavily used by runners.

WOW Hawk. Thanks. I think this waterfall is in one of the campgrounds on the creek? If so; been/stayed there and was serenaded all night by it. If not (agreed) is awesome place.

Was at Iris last night was rainy/windy cold... Moving to French tonight; then Tioga tomorrow. Keith I txt you! Tried 1/2 moon yesterday; wimped out b/c of cold. Back at the stables another couple were just going to the pass at 13:00 just as it started to rain. I bet it was miserable.

Drove through there from Reno Sunday. Smoke was so bad couldn't see much across Mono Lake. Not too bad at a stop in Mammoth and was mild in Bishop this morning.

As a cop my thoughts are there is a dead body somewhere in the wilderness.

I agree. The food are MRE's (not typical bp food) and the tent camo coupled with edible plant book... Some sort of survivalist? Just saying.

BTW, can hardy wait for FISHMAS even though I'm far away. Wish I could watch it on TV!

Wow; the upper Owens.  The host at Brown's Town Milpond posted last year a picture of a bear climbing over a fence... Thought that was unusual so close to the valley floor.

Eastern Sierra Forum / Re: Any fire restrictions in East fork CG?
« on: August 15, 2015, 05:42:27 AM »
James, I highly doubt there are restrictions within the cg's in fire rings. Never any bonfires though. Very windy? Not a good combo as it can related to an incident in the Holiday cg earlier this yr. when someone left a warm/hot campfire upon exit. S/b good to go. Welcome to the board! Enjoy all the cyn has to offer. Trip reports are always awesomely appreciated. Don't forget time for pie. Get there early for best selections! :pie:

I fished Ruby and Gem the week before the 4th....Nothing to write home about, the best was Gem for 6-8" brookies sight casted on drys... I 'fished both lakes hard, wet wading where I could and chucking metal into the deeps of Ruby, nada.  Wish I had better news. Maybe someone from last week's club event will have better/different news.  Tight lines all the same.

GREAT accomplishment for the young man. I just know he could not help learning a lot about himself in the past few days.
On a side note, the uncle is as proud of him as he w/b his if he were his son. I detect quite the bond Keith.... :rotflmao:

That's me most waking hours... :pie: :fishing3: :camping:
I just found out yesterday I get to go to Las Vegas on the 23rd. Get in about 11:30p. Soooooo. A long nap and a 5 hour roady will get me to Bishop' from there; who knows! I'm happy.

Welcome RL. I thank you for the insight and also your grandfather for working something worthwhile to give us an opportunity to look into the past. Any other info is eagerly awaiting for.
This is a great place. Info; history and just good people.  Next time in Bishop I'll look him up. I just passed there a week ago.  On a side note, I missed my exit in France and ended up in Italy (my heritage) Got stuck in traffic and turned as soon as I could. Ended up in Buggio. At the end of the road was a cemetery. Gorgeous headstones.  They people were living to be over 100 a hundred yrs ago...

Went to Green Lake from South Lake. I started Thur night the 21st with an utility sleeping arrangement n of Mammoth. Sat spent a couple hrs. setting up my Delorme Se. (two thumbs up on that hardware!)Then 3 nights at Iris, only planned two, but 3" of snow Fri night persuaded me an extra, besides site 6 was awesome! Drove up to Mosquito Flat tr Sat morn. Only two cars in the lot and about 8" of snow.  Fished Rock Creek w/o much luck.
With the Snow Friday night I decided to stay and extra night (Sat) in RCL area and go to Green Sun and Mon ni
Sunday went through Bishop and visited the people who run Brown's Town Milpond Rockchucker).  Went into town to get a bit of resupply (coffee) and headed up towards South Lake. Got to the South Lake th, culled my pack and set out about 14:00.  Went up the pipeline route. Prepared for snowy conditions with micro spikes and gaiters, did not need either.  It was a bit muddy and it made for the wet boots on the pipe was a bit slick.  Streams were low and passable. Snow patches 8" on n facing shaded slopes, easily passable.
Ran into a guy said best places to camp are directly diagonal from where on the trail you first see the lake.  I headed across some snowy patches that post holed as it was 17:00.  Made camp, ate dinner and it was too late to fish as it was dark and I was tired as it was my first trip of the season.
Woke up Sat morn about 06:00 and fished out directly in front of my camp for about an hour; not a bite chucking metal. Decided to eat breakfast.  Packed up for a trip around the lake clockwise.  The first part was in the snow. Being early it was hard enough to only sink 3" walking on it. I fished to the left of a boulder 10'x 5' above the water maybe, 10' off the shore. I hooked up and the fish went to the right of the boulder. I didn't want to race to the right side and risk post holing and falling in or twisting an ankle.  The fish jumped up out of the water above the rock and spit the lure.  Probably 12-15" fish.
The rest of the one side of the lake was snow covered about 5' from the shore. I didn't fish it as I didn't at least have hip boots. The only area was on a rock where the main trail hits the lake. A few followers but no bites.
Fished the outlet and landed one 12". Spit the lure as I landed him. Hooked up with another but never got it to shore after a 5 second fight. Facing se with the sun in my face it was getting hot so I shed some layers. In the rocks and shady places the mosquitoes were swarming heavily but not biting. They  noxious were obnoxious. So obnoxious that I was then contemplating staying only one night. I got back to camp, the mozzies were not too thick.  Sat and decided to take down the tent as the weather was showing that rain was not to be or not to be or not to be much.  My tarp setup would do.
It was about 15:00. After waffling back and forth thing of what dinner and evening w/b with the possible mozzies, I decided to pack up and leave.  When I got to Green the night before a bit later than that, they were only in the branches. I had no idea if they would subside.
I walked out all alone as it was Memorial day. With having the uphill trip under my belt the trip down was drier and felt less like Nik Wallenda.  So three hook ups zero fish to add.
Stopped by Monday morning to Intake II and met/talked to Jacmac. Had lot's in common.
Pictures to follow as I'm at LAX.
