Good stuff here. Nice fish everyone. Iíve fished right where you are talking Micro. In late summer you drop in just below the park entrance in EP and pool hop up river as far as you want. It can be a challenge to get out and up to the road the further you go up.

Some slick boulder problems in that riverbed when you want to move up a pool and ya have to do some bouldering to get there. I think the late summer on that section is perfect for tenkara. You have to do some shenanigans down in there and it would be nice to have both hands.
Iíve heard talk that the streams pouring into the valley have some fishing in them but not stocked in a long time. Iíve seen fish standing on the bridge in EC meadows before.

Might hit the east walker Saturday. Stimbo you around?

On Saturday I will be in the Valley for the big memorial service but on Sunday I was planning to hit the EW on my way home. Will you still be around?

Stimbo I wonít unfortunately. Letís hook up though and plan a weekend down there.

I have to get my act together and tie a bunch of flies for a Kauai trip in the next few weeks. I loaned Amy bone fish box to a buddy and well he put it in a bag with an aresole sun screen that well basically discharged its entire contents into a box of 200 flies. At least they wonít get sun burned but they smell like a can of sunscreen now and thatís not good. This is the year I hold a Hawaiian bone fish. Iíve put in a lot days on Annini and well Iíve seen a few but they are always 10 feet away when I finally see them. Also hoping to get some shots on some blue trevally that will come up on that flat. Iíve never fished it in June when the water is a little warmer. So Iím hoping that helps.

I would like to get you to join me for some lower sac drift time if you arenít too busy guiding.
Let me know if you have a weekend in July. Iím booked until after I get back from the island.
Let me know.

Hope all you fisherman are getting on some fish and thanks for sharing your pictures.

I will let you know about July, the Lower Sac is a hoot. Have fun in Hawaii! I hope you get your "bone."

And btw.... the EW is fishing well. You will enjoy the tugs.

Hey all,
gunna be in Yosemite Valley this weekend and was wondering if I should bring gear, is the fishin any good?
Is the Merced stocked in the Park?

Hey Tad,

We were gonna fish the Merced after the memorial but the flows were on the high side so we bailed and headed home, fishing the East Walker instead, which was killer.

And BTW, we were camped just below you in Yellow Pines. We had the white Toyota truck.

Stimbo,
nice fish Jim and yeah I never had the time to fish anyway. :(

I fished a little spring creek on the East Side this weekend. Quite different weather each day but caught about 40 fish each day. I must say that the recovery is coming along nicely. Nothing big but still plenty of fight. I can't tell you how many fish I caught on the near bank right after someone had just walked away from the area. These guys are not very spooky right now.

Also, those rainbows that were so silver sided earlier this year have now settled into typical rainbow coloring.

I did not even hear their arrival so I just assumed your group got a second wind and were ragin' away over there. I took a dose of tylenol pm but woke up at about 2 am from the racket. So then I stuffed my ears with plugs and settled back in for the night. Somebody called in to dispatch complaining of the noise and apparently several rangers arrived and broke up their party. I missed all of the commotion. I was surprised to see the tent between our rigs in the morning, the occupant sprawled out inside. Who were they?

Fletcher and a couple of his friends from back east, New Hampshire I think they said.

They left for the campfire 10ish after pitchin tent, mouse and I turned in for the night.

When I woke at 3am to take my ritual piss they were still rage'n pretty hard. I had no idea the ranger had been called earlier to shut em down until the next morning when Linda informed us, in the van I musta slept thru all that, mouse outside 10 yards away not so well.

Nice!! Man you get around...I'm jelly.

I'm slated for a Cuba trip next year. Hope it all pans out. Looking forward to the culture as much as the fishing.

Those bonefish always remind me of whitefish. Prolly an unfair comparison.

They do have a resemblance, but whitefish usually don't take you into the backing :)

I had a good time at Memorial.... happy to know LEOs were called for noise, fitting tribute to Jim.

I stayed in El Portel .... the River was raging. So I went on line for guidance and was happy to find out about Foresta, and big meadow. A nice mellow creek with pools and riffles... and Trout... smallish but fun .

Didnít take any photos.... I now like to get them released without removing from the water and who needs photos of 8 inch trout anyway .

Nice fish Bob! Give me a buzz when you are coming up to the EW, maybe we can scare up some nice fish.

I'm fighting the crowds and headed up to the Valley this weekend. I've done a lot of fishing on the eastside but never in Yosemite proper.

Any recommendations/places I should check out? I'm pretty new to fly fishing (and no good at it) but I'd like a place where I can fly and spin cast (when my fly efforts inevitably fail).

Looks like it's going to be a mix of clouds/sun, depending on the day. What gets them biting early in the season?
