Eastern Sierra Fishing / Questions on fishing in the sierras
« on: August 06, 2017, 10:49:04 AM »
Hello all I found this board a few years ago when I first went up to rock creek lake area. Read a lot of very useful information here. East fork is where we stayed and my group enjoyed greatly. The very well maintained campground was really nice.  Went last year in June and go rained on, snowed on, hailed and blow away by the wind.  Little lake valley would have to wait. 

I use to fish as a child on the piers in Florida north of ft lauderdale. A few years ago I resumed fishing in trips to tuolumne meadows esp. tioga lake with some success I just remember it bein so much fun. Two years ago I saw a trail head at the entrance to the park on tioga red. I looked on the map a saw it was gaylor lake, tough hike at first but what a find. Caught some fish too in the middle lake. Had no idea there where four other lakes to discover, that happen last year. Again a nice day fishing, pretty much all by myself, and a million mosquitos.

Had a few questions as i prepare for another trip up there. All trout related

1-If your on a hike a few miles in and 15 min drive back to camp, what is the best way to save any trout you may catch fresh til you get to camp. I have been using a stringer, keeping them in the water then put them a xl bag with some of the water.  Is there a better way?

2-  I have have using the panther martin lures and spoons, but for changing out lures I usually use a snap swivel for easy trade out, connecting the new lure right to the swivel.  Is there a better way without re-tying the line directly to the lure.

3- year think of going to gardinski lake off the road to saddlebag. I realize snow may be an issue this year. Anybody fish that lake?

Thanks much for any replies
