With two weeks of school in the books and an impending heat wave for Turlock we decided to head for the Eastern Sierra to stay cool and try to catch some fish. Since we wanted to maximize fishing and exploration time (as well as time out of the car for Zephyr), we “roughed-it” at the Toiyabe Motel in Walker, CA along HWY 395. The main objective of the trip was to scout the fishing & autumn foliage possibilities at Lobdell Lake in the Sweetwater Mountains. Laura and I had been telling one another “we need to get into those mountains someday” for nearly 15 years. This trip finally made it happen. We also spent some time fishing the West Walker River and finished with lunch at Leavitt Creek.
