Let it snow

Looks like Mammoth is going to get some white stuff this w/e. A little extra water for our buddies to bathe in!
The E.S. is where I come to get back to sanity and to the real me.

If you look at the Bishop webcam, it looks like they didn't get much...

Hopefully more is on the way!

The beach, trout fishing, and snow skiing in May! Not bad, not bad at all.

Maybe but I question what Sept or Oct will be like with this little water.  I fear rivers will be creeks and creeks will be trickles.

Larger streams like Bigpine,  Bishop,  Rock,  McGee,  and Lee Vining will be low but should have decent water all year.  Slightly smaller streams like Convict and Mammoth will be reallllly low by later summer.  I bet small creeks like Independence will be just trickling by then...
Once I arrive at Tom's Place...well,  you know...nothing else matters...

Low creeks mean its time to put the creek shoes on and walk the CREEK . My husband and I did this a few years ago at Convict creek between the Flies ,Lures we plucked out of the trees and all that trash in the water that was bugging me for months IT WAS A GREAT DAY  ;D
This year I am going to have to figure out how to do that with 1 dog that LOVES the water and 1 that thinks it's going to kill him  ::)

Corey, Thats great to here about your creek walks. I am always stunned with all the fishing line I can collect during a 3 hour fishing session around the east fork, upper pine grove, pond areas. keep up the good work. Tomorrow after this storm I will be walking my favorite beach here in South Orange County with my trash bag picking up after the storm and Spring Break people. Wouldn't it be nice if people would just take a minute to realize what they are doing to our outdoors and the wildlife that call it their home.

The last time I looked at the Rock Creek snow level chart it looked better than 75/76 but much lower than normal. In 76 we were jumping across Rock Creek. It was maybe 3' to 4' wide. My Friend and I started at the top of the waterfall above the lake and jumped from rock to rock all the way down the creek to the bottom (something I would not attempt today regardless). Can you say compound fracture?
