    How about Rock Creek, how was the fishing there??

    I fished the Owens the first part of August and back in March...a little cold but the fish were biting

    I will fish outside of Fort Collins in two weeks...
    The fishing on the Upper Owens was fantastic, I was catching 50-60 per day, about 7-8 hours each day. not alot of people fishing either.
    Rock Creek was a little slow, caught maybe 10 total. I have been fishing the Upper Owens since 1958. I spend two weeks a month up there during the season and during the off season fish the lower Owens 1-2 times a month. Just wish the gas prices were lower as I spend well over 300.00 a month just in fishing trips.

      spend about 4 months year in the Sierras and law enforcement up there is much different than So. Cal. All of the depts. are small, Bishop only has 20 or less officers. They do have a new female chief, A retired LAPD Captain.
      What? Joe P. is gone? He was one of ours.

        Those are some impressive numbers...and yes gas is getting to be a major part of the trip cost...oh well it is worth it once you get there...

          There are some who say, "keep your frequent-vacations destination as just that, a place to 'get away' to. If you live there and needed a break, where would you go?"

          I used to think I'd love to have a condo, there in Mammoth, that I could stay weeks at a time in, then rent out when I wasn't there.

          "You're never fully dressed without a smile."

          Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional.

          Three things I know for sure: (1) No bad deed goes unrewarded, (2) No good deed goes unpunished, and (3) It is entirely possible to push the most devoted, loyal and caring person beyond the point where they no longer give a 5h!t.

            The new chief got hired about 2 months ago. She had a very impressive career with LAPD. The old chief retired with medical disability, bad back if I remember correctly.

              That's not exactly what I would call it...but I don't know your perspective.

                    Keith, I am just going on what the local Bishop newspaper reported. I know nothing about her as I am LASD guy. Hell the paper could have been blowing smoke up their readers for all I know.

                        If the main roads to my house in LA County would not have been washed out a couple years ago I would be working there right now. The Bishop Lt. position opened up and I was the most senior Lt. interested in the spot. The price of real estate up there is high and I couldn't make the move without selling the LA homestead.
                        If the lifestyle suits you, go for it. You can't put a price on waking up every morning and not only loving what you do, but loving where you are doing it.

                        No- If you are where you want to be you don't need a place to get away to.

                          Thanks for the advice...the wife and I will continue to discuss it and I need to get up there and do some more reasearch...

                          I really need to get her up there a bunch in the winter to make sure it is something she can deal with...I would love the change of seasons. I would also enjoy the slower quiet life...she is a little more of a people person...

                            Get her a job herding cattle into the ski lifts.....she'll get all the winter and people she can take!

                              Yeah...I don't thing that would really help...she potentionally could take her job with her..which would be great cause it would help out a lot with her need for people and human contact plus the money would be great..same salary and benifits

                              Cause I know I would take a hit....but we do have the house down here that by then I figure the housing market will be better...not like our little city is suffereing..stuff still selling and not much of a loss..
