    My final trip of the year, love the Sierras in the fall! I started out on Crowley today, temps in the 20s to start the day, warmed up to the 60s! It couldn't have been anymore fun! I picked up 23 fish, mostly cutthroats, a couple rainbows. They ranged from 14"-22"! I caught all of them pulling steamers, nothing more fun than a cutty hammering a stripped streamer! I called it a day at 2:00, still have 9 more days.. I've got to pace myself! I'm looking for some 24" bad boys and some browns the rest of the trip! 20210930_130337.jpg 20210930_121514.jpg 20210930_111725.jpg 20210930_102951~2.jpg 20210930_104835.jpg 20210930_074843.jpg 20210930_124717.jpg

    Epic day!!! Way to hammer 'em! Where else is on your itinerary while you're up there? Or are you strictly tubing Crowley the whole time?

    In the fall I spend most of my time on Crowley. Hot creek, UO, and S.J. are just about out of water. Next week L.A.D.W.P. is going to start taking a bunch of water out of Crowley, so that will make the lower O. Unfishable. I normally fish Mary, George, and the June Lake loop this time also, but those fish are taking their time coming up from the depths after a really hot summer up here! If I'm stuck with one spot, Crowley's the place to be stuck. The guides probably need to get their boats off the lake this week because of the massive water level change next week! The docks might be high and dry!

    I knew that wherever you go, you will catch fish. Very very nice!
    Heck it sounds cold up there, but of course the fish don't care as you caught plenty of them.
    Here I am sitting having coffee and it feels cool with the temp at 60 degrees and to think you are
    fishing in those cold temps does not really surprise me, as you fish Sutherland when it is close to
    100 degrees with no problem. You are a heck of a fisherman mcfish. Enjoy you days fishing
    and having fun in the Sierras. :)
