My new year's resolution is to spend 1-night camping in the wilderness, and 1 fish in hand a month. I do a lot of backpacking in NorCal, including winter trips, and I bring my fly rod with me on most 3 season trips to try my hand at some alpine lakes. most of my dedicated fishing time is spent when Iím at my cabin up in Idaho, not so much in Cali. Also, none of my friends really fish, I have one or two who Iíve talked into learning, but when we go, it's mostly me being their guide and helping them, so I don't get the time I need to practice and learn on the water.
I'd like to change that.
Iím hoping to do a trip the weekend of 2/23, hence why Iím here: any recommendations on where to go for trout in the greater NorCal area this time of year, and is anyone interested in meeting up to do some fishing?
In case it helps with destination selection, i have a 9' 5wt for dries, indicator nymphing & streamers, and a 10' 3wt euro nymphing rod. I also have a 4x4 truck and plenty of room for people & gear
