What are you doing this weekend? Fly-fishing in the Eastern Sierra
Egads and little fishes, as my mom would say. I say give me the healing waters of the Eastern Sierra and trout on dry flies, caught, fought and released. It's nirvana in a rushing flow, only five hours north on Highway 395. There's not a better way to get fresh air and exercise -- and see sights that you might otherwise miss. Gas up, gear up, get a license and go. To read more about regulations and seasons, go to California Fish and Wildlife.

Fly-fishing in the Sierra( Darrell Kunitomi )
Geologists say they can see a fault line below the dramatic folds in this canyon above the Long Valley Caldera, created eons ago by a volcanic explosion that turned it into a recreational area. I don't see it, but what I did see was a pleasant surprise: a stream that I had to myself, full of willing trout.
