I'm leaving at the crack of dawn on the 25th. I always go up a few days early...As in past years I am always the first one in French Camp. Will fish the open section of the Upper Owens and crank off a few hundred rounds..Hope we get good weather for the opener....Plan on spending a week up there...

Sorry Fred  :-\    I can't help myself . I have learned to enjoy the anticipation almost as much as the actual trip because the trip goes so fast  ;D

Good luck to everyone going up for opening.

I think you might get lucky with the weather, just checked and it will be a balmy 46 degrees next Friday (better pack some shorts 8)) although it looks like snow tonight. Hopefully the once a week storm pattern breaks for you guys.

I can't wait to see some pic's of all the big ones caught. It's a long ways off until July when I can make it so I will have to live vicariously through those who can get there.

Trip #2 is set for next weekend.  Gonna fish Lone Pine to upper Big Pine, Thursday through Monday (Apr 26-30).  Staying at the Dow Villa.  I always enjoy exploring the Alabama Hills and other points of interest (eastern side of Owens Lake) on this trip.  Rock Creek trip to be planned for later this summer.  I've been packed for a week now.  As I used to say as a kid, anticipating trips to Lone Pine with my dad and grampa, "Hasn't started yet, but will be over before I know it."

If you're gonna hit the trail, take the point.

Corey, You're torturing us  ;D

Troutmom, making a list is a good idea. One year I drove all the way to Bishop before I realized that I left my rod and reel at the house. :-[

Corey Baer, did you walk around to the inlet?  I heard that the creek has destroyed the walkway again and was wondering if that was true or not.

Retired96,

Safe travels and enjoy it for me and the rest of us.

Mcgee Dude, I suggest that you avoid his site.  You might want to wave a white flag if approaching  ;D

@ flygirl   Yes and No it's not true . There is very little water at the back of Convict right now.
