Driving out it took an hour to get near the King river, on the way I came across a road kill dog with another dog sniffing around him, poor bastard. Started climbing up into the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains, I saw a spot to pull over and a sign that read "Fishing Regulations", I figured I already missed any early bite so I would throw some spinners for trout.
|#2 Bluefox Glow spinner|
|View looking north|
|Nice little drop offs that go from 3 to 20 feet|
|I can't wait to fish this area in the Spring|
|With so much area and rip rap to cover it is going to take a little time getting to know this lake.|
|Pulled up near a feeder creek to stretch my legs|
It was clear and swift water, the rocks were very slick on my rubber soled boots.
|King River 2 miles below Pine Flat Dam|
|The place came alive with color as the sun went down|
Lots of great looking water, I had 2 hits on a small Bluefox, I lost the first one but got the second rainbow into my hands before he flopped away.
|It looks like lightning split this tree and the river is doing every thing it can to take it away|
Still after all of that , it was nice to get out.
