Emerald Lakes - John Muir Wilderness

August 2, 2014

The High Sierra fishing is good at the Emerald Lakes for small Kamploops Rainbows and Eastern Brook Trout. Upon arrival you will likely notice fish activity in the water so locating fish is no problem. They are everywhere. We fished the lower of the Emeralds and found excellent action using dry flies while sight casting to small trout. The lower lakes are...

Shamrock Lake
Hoover Wilderness
Shamrock Lake - Hoover Wilderness


Shamrock Lake produces steady action for small, pan-sized Brookies. They can be selective sometimes but a small hares ear or pheasant tail should bring in a few. Most of the time we spent at Shamrock was spent sight casting to visible fish, which were everywhere. I used black and brown ants as well as some birds nests on our outing. We watched the Brookies...

Cliff Lake
Desolation Wilderness
Cliff Lake - Desolation Wilderness

June, 1999

Cliff Lake is listed as a Brook Trout water in northeastern Desolation Wilderness. It is a very small lake and relatively easy to access. We visited Cliff Lake during ice-out and it was one of the coolest sights I have ever seen. The shore on the north side consisted of half-frozen slush that was a neon aqua blue. The lake seemed very small but it was hard to...

EF Carson River- Alpine County

October 29, 2016

The High Sierra fishing on the East Fork Carson River was excellent this October when I took my family trout fishing. Everyone caught fish including a 3 1/2 pounder landed by my 92 year old grandfather. We drifted salmon eggs with a couple of split shot which put us into a lot of fish. Most were hatchery catchables but a couple were over two pounds. I tried...
