A May Trip to the Eastern Sierra
May 27th, 2009, 10:39pm
 
I left SB after the fires died down on 5/9/09.  I camped for 3 days on the Lower Owens.  The fishing was good in the early am and the late pm.
 

 
I stayed at a hostel in Mammoth for four days.
 
McGee Creek was full of spawnners coming up from Crowley Lake.
 

 
On the way to McGee Creek.......
 

 
This is a picture of a gentleman I met on McGee Creek and you can see the size of the fish we were getting.  It was sight fishing with midges. Amazing!
 

 
The Upper Owens was fishing well and it was nice to get away from the crowds.
 

 
Camped at Bridgeport Reservoir for three days.
 

 
The E. Walker was as sweet as could be.
 

 
It was spring time in the high country.  I fished Virginia Lakes one day.  The upper lake was frozen solid but the pay off was a sighting of a small black bear and a bald eagle.
 
One early morning on McGee Creek all I could hear was the whisper of the wind, song birds, and a deep silence that made me stop everything and enter into the purity of nature's sound-scape.  
 
Beautiful.
