    I've only ever fished the I-80 side (never SR-89)...there is a decent amount of access off of the Glenshire Road, Hirschdale Road, and there are parking areas at the Floriston offramp and the Farad...
  2. Re: Gerle Creek Reservoir and Twenty Lakes Basin (Yosemite) Help

    Re: Merced River Yosemite Valley

    Came across this pic I shot from the road about 10 years ago. It's a large pool upstream from El Portal on CA-140. How many can you spot?

    I have a tough time getting more than one anywhere, but especially the Truckee...got this little guy Tuesday morning on a baetis emerger under an indicator. Small, but love the color.

    East Carson hatchery fish?

    I caught a trout in the East Carson today that had its adipose fin, but had had the top 4-5 rays of its tail clipped off. Any idea of the origins of this fish?
