The Sierras opener is almost here you guys!
I wanna know what you got planned!
Tips and tricks? Any special lures or flies?

As for myself, This will be the first year I fly fish the Sierras. I'm going to take the flies I tied myself and hopefully get to tie a few more before I go!
Also I will take some lures. A few flatfish lures and as always I will be taking my Thomas Cyclones
In Red/Gold and Blue/Silver.
Those are the killers!

So lets hear it guys, give up the secrets! Lol

Looks like a tight lipped crew for the Sierras this year bro, or you will be there by yourself!

Thanks for sharing though.

It's been a few years since I've fished the Sierras, but I used to do ok with the old wet fly on a bobber trick in the Owens River. Black wooly worm. I was using spinning gear, of course, but it's a good change up from the usual kastmaster, mepps, etc.

It looks like we are going to stay at Doc and Al's. Small cabins where you cook outside.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] this is the most recent report I could find. I modified my Outcast prowler with a nice pole holder rig and fish finder. It looks like the trout are holding around 40 feet and below.

Well sorry for the week delay. The temp. in Bridgeport is in the mid 60's The nights are still very cold. The trout are holding across the bay from the public boat launch. The Res. is low due to the anticipated snow melt. The trout are hitting on trolling also 8-12 ft deep. The Twins have ice around two feet thick on the edges. Most of June loop is open. Virginia lakes are under 6 feet of ice. Hermon lake has 3 foot of snow to get to it. Good luck. Make sure waders do not leak. Kens only sells Sims and the start at 250.00. I know, mine leaked. My float tube pole holders were a success. Three trout per morning. All of them were over 2 pounds. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
