2011 — the year of the anti-drought

Some kind of snow year, eh? Some parts of the Sierra are registering over 190% of normal. Nice for late skiing, good for the fish next year, bad for getting early access to the backcountry for backpacking.

With the opening of the fly fishing season next Saturday, there are lots of tiny streams I might be able to get to only by skis. Love to be the first, even if no fish are seen. It’s for bragging rights only.
