Default Re: Fishing the John Muir Trail in the High Sierra

if I were buying a rod for that trip, it would be a BVK 8' 3wt with the 10' conversion kit...fish it at 8' in the creeks and 10' on the lakes. On some of those lakes you have to cast a fair distance to get past the drop offs. Any appropriate sized reel would do as you won't be worried about fish pulling much drag.

Any and all of the flies you and dhayden mentioned will work. I'd consider tossing in some beetles and maybe a few small buggers, just in case...I fish small stimulators with a pt dropper quite a bit up there too. oops, and Griffiths Gnats

Dhayden is also right about bears and bugs. They're both thick. Great walk. I've done a bit of it and am jealous...-Mike
