Just some cool video I took from this last week of a trout below the surface in one of the local creeks.

I've been following him for a while.  Cool guy.  Most his info is found online, but he has done a good job of putting in to books and rehashing it with his point of view.

It's been a while since I've posted here, but thought i'd share video from my trip to PVR in December.  The bite was off the hook!

Looks almost exactly like the one he caught last year.  IMO I'm still trying to think of how thisfish is over 20 #.  It is a big fish for sure, but 20?  I don't think so.

Wow Lundy Lake sure looks full compared to opening day!

excellent huck!!      simply excellent!

they have several of 'clean up' days up here along the rivers..... and they bring out tons nd tons of garbage....    its so easy to carry out your trash.. why dont folks just do it?

Exactly....  People will carry their trash in, but then those wrappers they leave, which basically weigh nothing!

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.

Very nice! Did you see any bighorns?

Nope, but I bet they were watching us.

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.

I know I plan on hitting up South and Sabrina in the fall hoping with the low water levels that some of the big browns may want to come out and play. :)

what an adventure!     and what a work out carrying those packs !

love the shot of the tree over the trail.. all's it needs is a small door:)

thank you for sharing!
It was a workout for sure! We were prepared to go overnight, but didn't. I can't believe how close that canyon is to the majority of SoCal and we were the only ones on it.

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!

Sorry I didn't respond sooner but we just got back today from 8 days worth of backpacking. I agree that the lack of snow and rain has put a real hurt on that little stream. Friday the 19th we stayed at the campground next to Horseshoe Meadows and like you said there is hardly a stream and few fish. We didn't even fish the meadow and decided to wait until we got up to the lakes. July 20 to the 23rd we camped up at the Cottonwood Lakes and the lakes are in pretty good shape but the water was very warm and the creeks up there are pretty skinny also. I had no problem going for a short but cool swim in the afternoon one day to cool off and clean up. The good news (for the lakes and not us backpackers) it rained every day we were up there. Mostly at night so it didn't stop us from doing what we wanted to do. When we got back to Bishop on Tuesday the 23rd we heard that 1.5 inches of rain had been recorded for the Alabama Hills. Sometime in the next week or so I'll try to post a report and some pictures of our stay there and the following four days in Sabrina Basin.


Can't wait for the report.  Iw as thinking of doing the cottonwoods soon.  Do you think it is doable in 3 days?  1 day to hike in and out and then 1 to fish?  Or should it be a 4 day trip?

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 / Re: Fishing with a spoon
« on: June 07, 2013, 03:38:45 PM »
Palomar knot is the way to go.  All I use for trout fishing.  It's fast and always holds up.

As far as spoons go, check out Thomas Bouyants and Cyclones along with Lip Ripperz Z-Spoons.  Any of the combinations of Red/Gold/Copper work great up there.

As far as retrieval speeds go.  I always start off slow and then will gradually work my way to speeding it up depending on what the fish want. 

Eastern Sierra Fishing / Re: Boulder Mountain UTAH?
« on: June 05, 2013, 09:38:28 AM »
My older brother and his family lived many years in Utah near the town of Boulder, which is close to Boulder Mountain.  I used to visit them about once of year, where they would take us to see Bryce Canyon, Zion and Cedar Breaks, Capital Reef, etc.  But also fish some of the many creeks and lakes on Boulder Mountain.  Also fished here as a kid on our family vacations, but donít remember too much as them early times were a blur!

This was many years ago as my brother moved back to California and have not been back since, so not sure if this is still relevant.  But Boulder Mountain consists of 60 to maybe 80 small to medium sized lakes, plus has many creeks to fish.  Many you can drive to, but the best trophy lakes youíll need a 4-wheel vehicle to get there.  One trip I remember well is what was called the Blind Lake area.  To get there take the SR 12 to North Slope Rd.  This is near the town of Torrey and the Parks Main Visitor Center.  Take this well signed dirt road to your designation.  Many lakes in this area to choose from.  Blind Lake and the many lakes in this area hold some very impressive sized fish.  The cuts (Colorado) were the most beautiful Iíve ever seen.  We caught 5 different species of fish that trip, all you listed plus the Rainbow but missed on the Graylings that trip.

Some of the creeks we fished were the Boulder and Calf Creeks, where football sized Brooks were the norm.  Check the regulations as they can change from one body of water to the next. 

Hope this helps.

Thanks!  We actually went up North Slope road and fished a few spots up that way, but the wind was so bad we were having a tough time out there.  Blind lake had white caps out on it!

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.

When we go to RC we drive up from Riverside on Saturday at a leisurely pace (about 75MPH) and spend the night in Bishop then drive up to RC bright and early Sunday morning for a week's stay. We've found this gives us the best chance of getting a good campsite in Big Meadow since a lot of people are leaving then. the last three years we've stayed at the Vagabond Inn, it's not super fancy but is clean and has comfortable beds. Since we're just looking for a place to crash overnight we don't pay the extra money to stay at one of them high falutin' super fancy places like the Creekside. The Vagabond is perfectly fine for us, the people are nice and the rooms have always been clean and well kept up. Plus there's a Denny's right next door where you get a discount for showing them your room key. They have a free continental breakfast which is pretty much donuts. It's a couple of blocks from Schat's and there's a Target store right there for us to pick up those last minute forgotten items. I've got our room booked for 8/24 already, we'll be at the creek for the following week, and I'm itching to get up to the creek and put up my hammock.

Vagabond is nice, clean, and cheap.  Perfect for just crashing out, that's about it.

There's a Target in Bishop?

No Just a KMart.

« on: May 16, 2013, 08:22:26 AM »
Thanks for all of the replies.

Amazingly, during the week in which they plan the trip, there is not a single hotel/motel/cabin available in Bishop!  It is as if Mule Days is going to take place at the same time,..., which it is not.

(We should have purchased the cabin at RCL.)

Thanks again everybody.

Why not check out Parchers up the mountain?
