Marauding black bears have roamed the streets of this old Gold Rush hamlet the past two months, pawing through garbage cans, breaking windows and doors to get into homes in search of food and raiding outdoor freezers. A pack of eight bears brazenly waddled down the main street of Sierra City, population 250, late one recent night, swatting at garbage cans and getting into dumpsters. One dumpster, jarred loose when a bear hopped in, rolled down a steep hill for a block before the bear jumped out.

I stood in waterproof waders, hip-deep in the surging Yuba River, wielding a fly rod. Swallowtail butterflies and dragonflies swept over the water, and sunlight glinted off distant mountains, a dusting of snow still evident in June. Everything was perfect. Except I still hadn't caught a fish. No matter. It was hard to be upset about elusive trout when so much natural beauty surrounded us.
