    Nice to see HC a coming along. There was a couple of years there where it was iffy as to whether it could retain a fishery.

    And to think they want to put in a gold extraction operation near it…

    I have found that the bobber guys do real well.Dry flys are alway iffy.Last summer I had 6 epic DF days as the hatch was just stupid and the fish were so thick it was crazy.The run between Hatchery and the Ranch I believe is one of the toughest spot to fish in the Sierras.Heavy pressure is a under statement.Tom
