Bear Creek is a trib to the West Fork so after fishing and past this trib I hiked back and up the trail about a 1/3 of a mile before fishing. Not that people use this creek for swimming but I’m told the first 1/3 gets pretty pounded.

I met a couple earlier on my hike up the West Fork who had hiked down Bear Creek trail. He had a rod in his pack so I asked if he fished, he said no it looked too shallow to fish. Also told me he saw no one fishing but to be careful because they had seen several rattlers out and about. So as I fished on up picking up one here and there I was thinking something seemed odd. Holes where I picked up multiple fish last trip yielded nothing. Water was a bit lower than last time but not much. As I got up to where I stopped the last trip and having just dodged another pair of ducks, I saw a fly line flowing through the air and sure enough, there was a guy fishing in front of me. It was getting later in the day so I decided to head back and hit a few more spots on the West Fork as I hiked back to the car.

I picked up a few on the way back down but everything today was small except one about 8” which jumped out of my hand before I got his picture. Camera shy, I guess.

Enjoy these pics too. Off to the Santa Ana today and hopefully more wild browns. To give you guys an idea where I’ll be fishing, the rogue cop Dorner burned the cabin down right along the stretch where I’ll be fishing.
