Default A Fine Day Out....

I was supposed to head up to the Eastern Sierra's with my son this weekend, but Thursday night he snapped his wrist at rugby practice. I mean 'full break- has to see the sports medicine doc' injury. With that, I decided to at least hit my local with my good friend, Sean. It was a good choice.

My local water is a federally designated wild trout stream. A quality fish there is 8-10" and anything above gets a tip of the hat and a cold beer. Today, the stream really gave it up. I was proud to be there when Sean landed a 17" bow- the largest I've seen taken from that watershed. I managed a few 12+ inchers, and all in all, we had a good old time. Here's some pics...

Very nice looking fish. I'm also from So Cal but have never fished any of the local waters, which really limits my time on the water; only a few trips to the Sierras each year and maybe one up to the Kern. Were these fish from the upper San Gabriel River area? Was wondering what local waters may be in my own backyard that I need to start investigating. Thanks.
