    PS;

    If they ARE going to poison all the fish in those streams..............

    it is too bad they don't POST an announcement in the regs, in the news and their office.with a no limit on those fish
    or at least 20 a day, so the fishermen can enjoy some heavy fishing limits and enjoy the trout.....
    instead of flushing them down the toilet !!

    Re: NV Wilderness

    I was brought up with "Skinney" , crystal clear waters when 9 years old and learned well
    from my Father on how to sneak up on trout and geta hook into them.

    Nevada or Calif....... it is all the same but
    there is nothing like a "Native Trout" out of cold spring waters.

    Early morning for the big guys works but I am a sucker for the evening dry fly Boom, with trout
    making dimples on the waters surface to mark their positions, for next cast.

    Snakes are a problem, worst spot is the East Walker in my book with the Red Bluff, Antelope creek a close second.
    You just have to keep a sharp eye out when July and warm weather comes around. Most of the time they are
    just relaxing but there is always one that is a bad ass and wants to make a fuss.

    No real problem when that are on land.............
    but I REALLY hate it when they are swimming upstream from you and headed your way and 20 feet from you....
    go under water !!!!!


    Nice pictures, by the way.

    Nice trip Jeff. Central Nevada is mostly unknown. It a shame that they replacing lovely browns, bows and brookies with LCT. LCT have a low survival rate and aren't nearly as tasty. They can't stand any fishing pressure. Want LCT? Go to Pyramid.
    Chance is always powerful. Let your hook be always cast; in the pool where you least expect it, there will be a fish. -- Ovid

    NV Wilderness

    I needed to get the family out for some backpacking but didn't want to deal with hordes of mosquitoes, dangerous water crossings, frozen lakes, etc., so I took 'em out to the middle of Nevada.


    It was a little warm driving to the TH:



    And a good sized rattler greeted us on the way in:



    But the views are always great:




    We hammock camped:



    Now for the good stuff: fishing!
    This is tight water and stealth is a must. My son was using an 8.5' Tenkara rod with dry flys:





    His tactics worked:






    We cooked them up, one by one, the simplest way possible; salt grilled:




    Like Sarah Conner, these fish are targeted for termination. NDOW, USFS and USFW have a plan to poison out all the non-natives and restock with LCTs. The removal will take place Summer/Fall next year if all goes according to plan. So it may be a few (or more) years 'till this place is fishable again.
