Opening weekend of the Eastern Sierra trout season has come and gone and once again the majority of the news focused on "body counts" from the various popular fishing spots. Why is it that Southern California sportsmen hold this annual pilgrimage to Sierra lakes and, for a brief weekend, create a mini-L.A. basin complete with crowds, noise and litter?
I haven't figured out that one yet, but I would like to thank Rich Roberts for devoting a bit of his article (May 2) to a few people who, like myself, would just as soon enjoy a little solitude with our fishing. I may never catch a limit of trout, but neither will I feel like I'm at Disneyland on my next Sierra fishing trip.
