A Weekend in Bishop
12.02.2012 55 °F
Just got back from a beautiful weekend in Bishop, a town about 45 minutes south of Mammoth and well-known for world-class fly fishing. It was great to get away for the weekend, especially since it's been one of the first weekends in a long time that Jer and I have been able to sneak away together. We left Bakersfield Friday evening to a setting sun and drove through the darkness on the 14/395 until we reached our little home away from home at the end of Main Street in Bishop. Before we arrived, however, we stopped for dinner in Lone Pine (and I had a delicious turkey burger).
Saturday morning we awoke to a chilly but sunny morning. We stopped into Culver's Sporting Goods to pick up a few last-minute items and then made our way to the Owens. It was truly a beautiful day on the river--not many people considering it's a holiday for most--and despite Jer throwing his back out before we ever got started, we still managed to have a great day. We both did a little wading and a little bank fishing (Jer more so than me) before we got a tip on a good hole that Jer was able to pull a few fish out of before we made our way in for the afternoon. I spent most of the day taking pictures (I just uploaded quite a few).
We had a great dinner at Whiskey River, crashed pretty early, and then took our time coming home today. It was a nice drive back, especially since we were able to see the Sierras all the way home.
I hope you all enjoy the pictures. As the spring comes, I hope to post more pictures and more posts. Have a wonderful week, everyone!
