Thanks peninsula. I'm watching the fall color thread/website to time my next trip to the Bishop area.My favorite time of the year as well. Football, color, great hiking weather!
(BTW, I hear the big fat trout are hitting the emerging flies HARD up in the upper Kern River, above Johnsondale. May have to make a day trip, eh?)
In all my years, I've never had the opportunity to wet a fly in the Fall. Next year, I'm planning to take my first Fall trip into the Sierra (if all goes according to plan). In the meantime, a day trip sounds like a great idea!
