Anyone been to Stumpy or Hell Hole this year yet??? Or are the roads to much snow. Planning to go to HH with a buddy 17th May. Would like to here some reports before then. Input greatly appreciated.

Rivers are a mud-hole right now and I'm ready for High Sierra trip soon.

wentworth to stumpy meadows has some snow on it still but not bad, we got a few inches in the last few days but I bet you will see pavement the whole way by this weekend.

some friends were just at Hellhole last weekend and went in from Gtown on 11 pines road. they were in a toyota 4x4 no problem.

if you have 4wd then you will be fine even towing a boat to stumpy tonight.

by the 17th of may the road to hellhole will be clear.

fyi... DFG is planting stumpy again this year, so fishing should be much better then last season.

I fished stumpy last week. huge disappointment but still a nice time on the water. We trolled crawlers behind dodgers and flashers. also pulled rapalas and needlefish. We had 10 takedowns but nothing stuck. That's right no fish to the boat even though we slowed down after a hit, etc. most hits came 50' out from the orange bouys out from the dam. good luck!
