    Camping at Mono Village. Wind is sucking. Fished Big Virginia today. Black Wooly Buggers got it done on Brookies and Rainbows. Waiting to see if the wind backs down tonight. Lost a big rainbow on a Wooley last night. Otherwise, I might fish the East Walker on Friday. Did I say the wind is sucking?

    Fished the East Walker. Lots of wind. Didn't hook anything until after 1200. Likely the biggest Brown I ever hooked. Smoked me on my 4 weight. Lost another an hour later. Hooked another huge one. I knew I was dead when he jumped. Took off down stream at Mach 9. And yes, lost him too.

    The Eastern Sierras have had the worst spring winds in a long time. Seems like the winds are blowing every couple days!

    Yep. Winds in San Diego have been an issue. Lots of wind out of the South and South West have been a problem for those of us fishing Saltwater as well.

    Had the opposite problem up on the Oregon central coast last week . Relentless N wind and small craft warnings and 6 foot plus surf the whole time I was up there . Did manage a few red tail perch for the grill , had to use sand shrimp because the sand crabs were all in the silver dollar size . In the millions BTW . Tight lines WR
