Double steelhead morning last Sunday!!!! After literally 3 years of getting skunked I'm really starting to figure this spot out. With the mega rain I think this will about do it for central cal steelhead season :,(

I'm headed to the Alabama Hills tomorrow and then climbing and working my way towards Bishop through Wednesday. Any recommendations on where to find some trout? I hate to say it but I so rarely make it to the eastside that my eastside trout game is weak....

The climbing should be really good. The river around Bishop is totally blown out. I'm guessing it's flowing at about 500cfs. Pretty much not doable. PVR if you must otherwise head to Upper O/Hot Creek. Should be pretty good on the Upper. Nice weather. Don't get yer rig stuck up there though.

Just got back from another trip to Pyramid Lake, Nevada.

Had the distinct pleasure of meeting WTF- he's an awesome dude!

The fishing, like the weather, was hot and cold, but we did mange to catch a few of the 25 to 30-inch cutthroats this lake is famous for.

Missed the epic day that WTF's group had by one day- the classic "you should have been here yesterday," but such is fishing.

WTF it was an amazing weekend. Well, I canít say ďweekend,Ē cause I was only there for four hours! You know itís a special place when a punter like me is willing to drive 12 total hours for 4 1/2 hours of fishing. But man, I have to admit, I was on fire for those four hours. Four nice fattys landed to the net and two more good sized ones that I brought within a foot or two of the ladder.

But really I came for the hangout time around the fire and the B.S. sessions around the truck.

Thanks so much for the invite last year and what has been the start of a good long friendship. I know you will miss that place, but new adventures await and the way I see it, itís only about 15-16 hours to Colorado so Iím down for a road trip! Figure out that water and get ready to put us on some nice fish out there.









From there on out, it was pretty much a madhouse. Macronut and I traded off catching and landing nice fish while Limpingcrab struggled and WTF and Robert steadily produced.






Pretty soon, the sky got dark and the and the wind picked up and things started to really happen. Limpingcrab finally got on the board with this absolute monster. 13-14 pounds maybe?

Macronut, an absolute rookie on a borrowed 8wt rod who had no idea how to double haul ended up being the king of pyramid lake that day. The kid could do no wrong. It was ridiculous. I think he said he landed over 20 of these things.





Eventually, I had to mount up and head home to be at the dinner table by 6 PM for a dinner party that I promised my wife I would not miss. So yeah, I drove 12 hours to fish for less time than it takes to play a round of golf.

But man, with this clan and for those fish, I would drive double that to do it all over again. Thanks WTF.

Adios amigos. Until next time...
