Number one on the list was the West Fork of the Carson River and I checked that one off on June 20th.
Number three on the list was the East fork of the Carson and Wolf Creek. This one got a half of a check on June 29th because I got the East Fork, but missed Wolf Creek.
Number Two on the list I checked off today. The Middle Fork of the Cosumnes above the bridge at Cat Creek Rd.
I pulled out of the house at at 0730 and after the coffee stop at Cooks Station, arrived at the creek at 0815. I decided, since it is supposed to be warm today, that I would wet wade. I put on my wader boots and wool socks, not for warmth, but for bulk because my wader boots are a size larger than I normally wear. For my effort, I entered the stream for the first time at a blazing 54.4 degrees.

The other three on the Tenkara "bucket list" are:
Four, The Silver Fork of the American River below the twelve mile bridge.
Five, Silver Creek and Lyons Creek off the road to Wrights Lake
Six, Mokelumne River off Red Corral Rd
Number Four will probably be checked off next Tuesday. Glenn (my retired Sheriff friend) and I are going to toss some flies there during our yearly 4th of July week fishing trip. OK, if you're counting I know it's the 10th.
Day after tomorrow I'm off to a new place, so I'll let you know how that goes. I don't want to say too much, might jinx it.
Thanks for stopping by.
Nice and small Mark but at least not overgrown for this time of year. Weeds seem manageable. Cute little rainbows. Almost like micro fishing. What are the biggest you have seen in that little creek?ReplyDelete
Morning Mark. 8 or 9 inches seem to be the biggest so far. There are a couple of holes that I'm sure there is something bigger in, but haven't been able to coax them out, yet.Delete
Mark that's awesome.ReplyDelete
I could find myself in a stream like that and feel right at home.
Not trying to troll you or anything but why do you give such specific spots in your blog.
You may not be trying to burn spots but telling exactly where you went could give info to the wrong people. Make them work for that kind of info.
Just my 2 cents
