Art-Paul is right,  Bass are very tasty,  especially the 1-2lb size,  the bigger ones can get a bit fatty from just sitting around,  especially if they are in a muddy lake,  the fillets will get mushy.  I grew up down around Blythe,  I call em the bad ole days as we used to keep a ton of bass.  For the most part now,  a lot of guys just catch and release.  On the occasion though,  when I catch a striper,  get me some bread crumbs and olive oil and a frying pan in a hurry!!

That is excellent timing aquaman.  If you get there early just hang out and fish or eat pie till early afternoon and some prime spots should be opening up by then!!

hmmmm....is that in the Sierra national forest?  I always release bass but it almost sounds like keeping some might benefit the place if there are a lot of small bass in there.

For me I really don't have a favorite bass lake in or near the Sierras as I am always going up there for trout.  I have caught some bass out of the Owens River out near Independence,   and have driven up toward Billy Lake which looks pretty good for a float tube...

if you want spots by the creek you are prolly too late,  most of them are taken up 6 months in advance.  There are many other nice sites in the campground not on the creek which are not reservable.  Depends on when you will be arriving.  Sunday afternoon,  for example,  is a good time to snag some spots as people pull out to go home.  Thursday or Friday evening,  forget it.  When will you be arriving?

Art-it is a very nice boat-wish it was mine!  Most of the lake in So Cal have 35-45 mph speed limits,  but my cousin has had that boat up to around 60mph down on the river in AZ.  60mph in a boat feels like your face is gonna peel off!

Eastern Sierra Forum / Favorite Rock Creek area day hike

Since we have a new board and are gearing up for the new season,  which I suspect might start a bit early with the light snowpack,  let's start a poll.  For me,  my fav. has to be up to Chickenfoot and back.  I always catch a ton of trout up there in the creek above the lake,  and usually see very few people.  I can't wait till July!!

Good to see the board back!  For all you crazy folks who don't fish till opening day in the Sierras,  here are some pics for you-the  bass are biting at Castaic! Got out there with my cousin and caught a few nice ones.   Get out and fish everybody!  Soon!
