High Country Trout

I had the opportunity to get away from the city for a few days. I drove from Los Angeles through the Mojave desert and on up the the Southern Sierra Nevada. My destination was the Golden Trout Wilderness in search of golden trout.

Here is what I was rewarded with, mind you these fish are not big, but what they lack in size they more than make up for it in beauty.


Here my buddy Craig trying to keep a low profile so that he doesn't spook the goldens.


This here is another buddy with his first golden trout ever.


Here is another golden, the colors are just awesome


and here are some shots of the meadow.




There were also some nice little plunge pools with some great views as well.


Hope you guys enjoy a little bit of fly fishing from out in California.

Beautiful shots! Many thanks.
My wife and I used to be fire lookouts in Sequoia/Kings Canyon National Park. From our lookout we could hike a few miles to some source streams (Kern drainage) coming off the Sierra crest (neighborhood of Kersarge Pass), plus a couple of lakes containing Goldens. These fish were always a delight to the eye.
Cheers,
Eric

Hi Eric, the goldens certainly are a delight to the eye. Photographs never do these beautiful fish justice. You have to see them up close and in person to really appreciate the beautiful colors.

vtloon, I'm not familiar with Pickle Meadow, I'm going to have to google the name or look on my map to see where it's located.

Thanks for the replies

Smile High Country trout

Some older Marines will rember Pickle Meadows, a lot of us spent some time there on our way to Korea. In the summer months, we stayed in base camp and fished the Walker river for mostly Browns and Rainbows. Drove to Bridgeport and fished the reservoir for bigger fish. Semper Fi to those who remember Pickle Meadows Cold Weather training.
