Trout season opened Saturday for most of the Sierra. Always check DFG regs before fishing a stream. I, myself, have not been able to get out yet, but that will change this week. I've been tied up with projects around the house, but when I was in Angels Camp on Saturday I did see a couple of guys walking down to the creek with fly rods. Hope they had a good day. Angels Creek is one of the creeks I've fished for many years and has always produced a good number of Rainbows, if not a limit each time. Unfortunately this is one of the creeks that is on the DFG's no stock list. Going to make it harder to take any fish because it's a widely fished creek. If you are out this far, New Melones is just around the corner on Highway 4 toward Sonora.
I have to go out to Angels Camp to pick up my chainsaw, hopefully later this week (in for a tuneup) and I'll give the creek a shot. I'll report later on that.
Now that the Sierra Trout is open, I'm going to put some time in on local creeks and rivers and see if anything is popping. I have some ideas for the South Fork of the American River at Riverton (where Hwy 50 crosses the river at Crystal Basin Rd). Tune in later for a report on this.
Well, off to Sacramento for more project material. Maybe I can sneak off and hit a pond or something.
Till next time, remember: "A bad day fishing is better than any day with the log splitter" which is where I spent yesterday.
