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

I know you'll be fishing streams but I would tell you to get a 5wt due to the wind you will encounter at the lakes. Your gonna need that backbone and it will work just fine on those streams. As far as flies, I tell you to take birds nest, ants, mosquito's, gnats, and whatever favs you have. I strongly recommend you read Ralph Cutter's Sierra Trout Guide for the lake and stream info in the back. Go test cast a bunch of rods at a respected fly shop to see what feels right for you and set you up with a nice balance rig
