Did a 3 day trip into the Ansel Adams Wilderness in search of Golden Trout.  Weather was perfect - mid 70's during the day to low 40's at night.  Mosquito hatch of July has died out, leaving only the fish biting.  Notable gear this trip: Luci inflatable solar lanterns, Parachute Adams flies, Prarie Belt/canteen pouch which held FAK/Patagucci level 5 PCU/Nalgene Oasis/collapsible landing net. Tried out baby food pouches for the first time this trip and they really provided a boost in morale and nutrition to have fresh fruits and vegetables for a price in weight.








Sierra Gooseberries - taste like ripe cherry tomatoes


visited the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest. Some trees were over 4,000 years old

Looks like a great time. Beautiful trout y'all caught. I love my inflatable lantern, but it never seems to make the cut on most trips; always handy during power outages though. Thanks for sharing the pictures!

Damn you man! The golden trout is the one fish I want to catch before they're all gone. Great pics, i'll have to head up there next spring.

That's a heck of a comfortable looking camp!

Last summer I crossed the AA wilderness on a 10 day hike through it and Yosemite. It is beautiful country with lots to see and plenty of lakes to fish. You are fortunate to be able to spend time in it. We saw fish in almost all the lakes but didn't do any fishing. Loads of fun!
