Tim,

As always great flies, and a nice stretch of river! If my legs could carry me I'd love to fish a place like that.

Martin

Martin,

This is the impoundment that feeds the river and the view one sees coming off the water..Bridgeport reservoir..,



and one of the views on the way up to the alpine valley where Bridgeport, CA is located...my daughter Ally above Mono Lake...



I have been coming to this place since I was a little boy...it is where I met Frank Arcularius on the water (see Ray Bergman's TROUT) and watched CA FF legend, Ned Grey, fish a brace of wets, when he was in his 80's...
