Things are trending well on the West Slope of the Sierra!
There are some great opportunities to fish in the Sierra National Forest & Kings as well. In Kings Canyon / Sequoia you have all the Marble fork looking great for dry fly action.
The river has more of a bass/ striper presence as you go away from the Dam
Rafters are in full swing so watch flows. South Fork is doing great. Yellow Sallies, and Hare’s ears. The Hwy 4 corridor is improving.
Tuolumne- Run off is the issue the middle section tributaries like the South fork are doing well. Subsurface caddis & midges work well. Especially just right out of the National Park boundary. The meadows are still a little high.
El Portal is doing good, still a bit high but it is fishing.. just watch flows and temps. Look to the S. Fork as a good southern spring tributary to fish. Lower Merced lots of Pike Minnows, Suckers, and when you catch a rainbow with a tracking tag on it know it is a rescue fish and keep it in the water.
