I knew the hike to Gardisky Lake was tough. I first heard about the lake about 18 years ago. A friend and I met a guy while fishing the Eastern Sierras and he told us about a good lake to fish called Gardisky. He then warned us it was a really steep hike. I have heard the same warning ever since. The lake was good fishing, the hike short, but tough. Well, they were right.

I originally had grand plans of trekking two plus hours north with my sons to Davis Lake for the damsel hatch, but found out one had grown out of his waders. A trip to Reno to buy new ones made it so I didn’t want to go that way again so soon. I had heard Virgina Lakes was doing well, and with all the options in that drainage, I decided we would make the hour drive there. That is until I found out, as I was packing the night before, that I had misplaced my fins. A thorough search of the garage failed to turn them up. I can almost see them lying on the shore of some lake looking all sad and forlorn as I drove away without them.

So stream fishing it was. As I had little time to plan, I figured we would play it by ear and do a little scouting. I headed south towards Bridgeport. (more…)
