    I would have to agree Bill. The Delta and our anadromous fisheries are shot to hell. In my own back yard, the Lake Davis fishery has suffered greatly because of the illegal introduction of bass. They have overpopulated the lake and insect populations have crashed due to the millions of young bass hunting the weed beds.

    On the other hand, Pyramid has risen like a Phoenix from the ashes as a trophy trout destination. Despite tremendous crowds the Truckee seems to be holding its own. I do have concerns though because Whitefish, considered a sentinel species (the aquatic version of a canary in the coal mine), have largely disappeared. The East Carson recently lost its wild trout status because Alpine County has been dumping so many hatchery fish into a major tributary that the wild trout have gone the way of the Dodo. We are the enemy.

    Thanks again Ralph.......us Baby Boomers were so fortunate to grow up when the fishing and hunting in California was fantastic.


    I am so excited about the "newly found old fish" in Pyramid Lake now.



    I am also kind of excited about the dams coming down on the Klamath river.

    Ralph, what is your take on these dams being removed?


    Imagine how hard it is today for even the best guides to produce something for their customers.

    Wow, I can’t even imagine how good the fishing must have been in those days. I did catch my biggest dry fly rainbow on the Williamson in 1976, 9.75 lbs on a Rosborough bucktail caddis bought in the hardware store in Chiloquin. So far this year I’ve been averaging about a dozen a day but have caught 6 over 10 lbs.

    On the way up to Crane Prairie in the 1970s Joe Shirshac and I stopped at the "Park /empty lot" access in town late one evening and I landed, probably my largest stream dry fly Rainbow, about 5 pounds on a #10 Buck Caddis.


    Thanks Bkane,

    I see you live in Redding, California, one of the best places to live to have amazing hunting and fishing close by.

    At your age I guess you have had about as many years of good fishing as anyone on this message board.

    I am excited to have you posting here.
