Eastern Sierra Fishing / Re: What's in my pack? Backcountry fishing kit.
« Last post by Fishing4Gold on May 22, 2018, 04:32:48 PM »
Hey all! Good looking kit and i hope you have some luck up there fishing. I myself had a question as to what type (meaning sink rate) sinking line you all prefer, I just picked up my first reel dedicated more to sinking line presentations so i was curious as to what is preferred for the eastern sierra lakes and depending on depth. Thanks in advance for any replies as ill be taking a trip here in about two weeks.

Maui - Hawaii


We started our Maui journey at the airport.  After picking up our rental car, we took the highway that takes you from Haleakala to the West Maui Mountains, which is a beautiful valley!  On the way is Iao Valley State Park.

According to the US Forrest Service, Pine Grove Campground is open.  Pine Grove Campground sites are first-come, first-served.

Streamer is a large fly, like a Woolly Bugger or Matuka.  Streamers are very effective at Rock Creek Lake when trolling.  Set your speed at about 1 mph and add split shots as needed to reach proper depth.

Bubble/fly combo is the preferred way to go for the lakes and streams in the Eastern Sierra.  Also using spinning pole/reel combo allows you to switch easily to lures or plastics.

Several good tackle shops in Bishop.  I usually stop at Reagans Sporting Goods if I need anything. :fishing3:

Thanks for the response.
Forgive my ignorance, but what is a streamer? Also, if I don't have leadcore, could I tie a torpedo sinker onto mainline, then tie leader with lure to other end?

I should add, I only will be using spinning tackle. I am excited about trying to fly and bibe technique on it though!

I'm going to a local tackle store this week to see if they sell any flies, if not, are there any tackle shops in bishop that do. Again, thanks for the response and the help.
