By now everyone’s heard the old standby “Why did you climb the mountain? Because it was there.” But if you’re like me (I never leave home without a fishing rod on my pack) and someone asked you “Why did you hike the John Muir Trail?” you could say “Because there were trout.”
If you could have a sherpa lug your pack down the John Muir Trail then“Trout Fishing the John Muir Trail” by Charles and Steve Beck would be in that bag. A complete compendium of fishing in the High Sierra this book takes-the-cake in my book. But you don’t need to take my word for it. Just take a look at what some of the people have been saying about it on Amazon.
The John Muir Trail runs 210 miles through the spectacular Sierra Nevada mountain range and serves as a connection to numerous trout-fishing waters. The trail passes by forty sparkling trout-filled lakes, crosses another forty fish-inhabited creeks, and follows six of California’s biggest, untamed freestone rivers. Steve Beck’s Trout-Fishing The John Muir Trail is a complete guide to this magnificent wilderness route, , illustrated throughout with color photos, and includes detailed information on planning and preparing for a trip to the John Muir Trail, fishing along the trail, fishing tackle, hiking gear, hiking tips, the top twenty trout streams, fly recommendations, and a great deal more. Whether novice angler or experienced fly-fisher, Trout-Fishing The John Muir Trail will prove an invaluable, indispensable reference guide.
