Anyway- we clocked in lots of fishing hours - i did not end up winning -i thought i could redeem myself this year, but Katie B. a friend of my sister's pulled in a 3 lb trout on a nightcrawler that ended up being a tagged fish in a different Bishop derby (she won $100!).
One of the best parts/hardest parts was our hike up to Tyee lake. we hiked for about an hour and a half - straight up. it was a workout, but worth it when you reach a lake with beautiful brown and brook trout. The picture on the right below is of the Tyee Lake that we hiked to. all the fish were small, but gorgeous and the lake was peaceful and no one else was there. We decided it would be good to do a hike every year to some of the lakes you can't reach by car.
it definitely gave me the camping bug and i need to start planning our next trips. it was so nice to be somewhere where our phones didnt work and there wasn't email and you had no other entertainment save the fire and your bubble bobbing.
