July is a wrap!
Updated: Aug 1
It's that time of year again when I'm preparing for my northerly migration to Alaska. As we wrapped up this last week of July its hard to believe the summer has gone so fast. Where has everyone been? July has produced some great fishing for those who made it up to the Eastern Sierra. Access to some of our favorite spots are finally opening up. The Mammoth Lakes Basin just opened for car traffic a few weeks ago and all of the seasonal passes including Tioga are now available for our recreation. Reds meadow just opened this past weekend as well. There is still a lot of snow and runoff as a result but the San Joaquin will be in prime fishing conditions come mid August. Flows are still high for many local streams but it has settled down enough for safe and productive fishing. Crowley Lake continues to rise daily and should reach record highs for lake levels. This should help through the hottest months of the summer and keep the water on the cleaner side and the fish active and healthy. I expect this fall to be our prime time for the 2023 season.
I will be mostly off grid for August but I can respond at least once a week to trip inquiries. If you haven't made it up this year don't wait to get on the books. September and October will be producing some great fishing opportunities and you don't want to be on the wrong side of the story telling. I will be in Alaska from August 7th-28th. I hope to see you all this fall and make some new memories on the water.
