I was searching through Fly Fishing blogs the other day, and came across this really awsome site Fly Fishing Journal. It is the Fly Fishing blog of a guy that lives in Singapore and it has got pictures of some really exotic and cool fish. So go and check it out, I know im going to be following this blog!
A heads up to all you Fly Fisherman out there in Southern California. The Department of Fish and Game has posted on their website that they are no longer going to be stocking some of the best steams in Southern California with Trout. Here is the website to check out the list DFG. These streams incluude Piru Creek, East/West Fork San Gabriel River, And Bouquet Canyon Creek. This is a perfect example of why we need to respect the resource, it might not be there for very long. As I have said before if you are out on a stream, or anywhere for that matter; be respectful, pick up trash if you see it, and practice catch and release as much as possible.
Over Thanksgiving I had the chance to go up to Big Bear Lake, CA. I did not really get to do alot of fishing, but it is a great spot. There is fishing all year round, and there is a fishing shop down town to pick up current lake info. Here are the spots that I have heard are the best; Boulder Bay, The Flats next to the airport on the east end of the lake, and the shoreline of the north/northwest end of the lake. They have all the species you are looking for Bass, Panfish, Catfish, Carp, and Trout. All you have to do is go in the right season. Here is the website I like best Big Bear Lake Fishing Report. Below are some pics of the lake from my trip.
If anyone is looking for a good Fly Fishing store in the Pasadena area check out the Pasadena Orvis Store. It is a great place to buy flies they have alot of great patterns and if you get on their mailing list they will send you some good offers. Here is the website to check it out.
