Trip report
« on: June 05, 2013, 05:32:29 PM »
Spent 5 days in heaven AKA Rock Creek,,, had my favorite site in French Camp and the place was empty,, never more than 10-12 other campers and no one was even close to me...
The creek was not stocked after the Memorial day holiday so I had zero luck fishing in the campground.... I did almost all my fishing on the Owens... caught about 50-60 fish but none were even worth keeping... There was so much moss in the river you had to clean your line on every stinking cast.. It was a real pain in the butt....Very few fishermen on the river... River was stocked last Friday and they dumped 1800 pounds of fish, but all were on the small size....

Weather was nice but actually a little too warm for me as the temps on the river were about 85 every day,, nights were in the low 40's

Went shooting 3 days and fired about 1000 rounds....
