fishing for words

(and tossing out random thoughts)

early pass opening?

Looks like it will be quite a different fishing season in the Eastern Sierra this summer and fall. According to California Department of Water Resources “the Sierra snowpack this spring is just 42 percent of normal, its lowest since 1990,” as reported on Plowing for Tioga Pass will begin April 16 — a bit earlier than usual — and the pass could open two or more weeks earlier than “normal” (often around Memorial Day). While this will mean I should be able to get across Sonora Pass earlier this year, it may also mean that many of the smaller streams I like to fish will be only puddles by the end of August. Guess we can’t have it both ways…
