Met with Nighthawk in Bridgeport and headed out. Because the weather had been so nice we decided to head for the high country and there is no place higher you can drive to then Saddlebag Lake. We arrived at the lake just as the sun was beginning to hit the water. The lake was drawn way down due to dam repair. We fished around the boat dock with only one strike then boarded the ferry to the upper end of the lake. We fished where the creek entered the lake for a couple of small bows. The wind came up and others came to fish by us, swimming dogs and all. Back up the lake for a photo tour of Tioga Pass. We had lunch in Bridgeport then went to do some fishing on the Walkers. Our first stop was the Little Walker where we got two stocker bows. Stops at the 395 Bridge, Chris Flat and Mid Canyon netted us no more fish. Tom it was certainly nice to fish with you again. The weather was much better than last year. Perhaps next year we'll manage to get more fish.

Hey Richard,

Beautiful pics ... thank you for sharing! I'm surprised the Bridges didn't give up more fish. Say, have you ever fished Owens River? We fished it for the 1st time in August & did great!
