I was in CA visiting my mother and sister last September and decided to bring a fly rod. I went up into the mountains with a friend that works at Orvis Pasadena and fished the West Fork San Gabriel River. It is a crystal clear stream with wild rainbow trout, not that far from downtown LA. It took a while but I finally started to get the hang of dry fly fishing again. In this section the fish were small but well fed and feisty.
