    Just left the East Walker river. All you want 8” and 11” brown trout. Must of been a couple great spawns the last two years. Largest for me was 14”. You had to get thru a ton of little guys to get a big one. I spoke with a few people that caught 20”-24” fish.
    Moving south.

    Ya.. Capt America Powerbait. Found out that if you paint white eyes on live crickets, the effect is the same.

    My intent was to throw streamers but when I arrive the water was way down. Right away some guys said the section I was in was filled with small brown trout. Sounded good but after a few sessions of little guys and I was done.
    I'm sure if I would of hiked more I would have ran into a couple of bigger fish. I just didn't have the desire to beat myself up that much for a couple nicer fish. The bigger fish are there you just have to put in the effort and I didn't.

    I got rid of a couple of the ugliest dry flies I had in my box. They would eat anything. Towards the end I threw small streamers and very large caddis dries into the pools trying to catch the largest of the fish in the pools. It worked somewhat, I landed a few 12" inch fish.

    Thanks for the reply mcfish,
    Steve

    Southern California is great there's just not much trout fishing nearby. Back in Minnesota I'd hit up the Kinni in Wisconsin in the afternoons and even though I sucked and the Kinni is a tough go due to pressure, I always enjoyed it.
