Somewhere in Southern California is a stream or should I say a section of stream? Dead by most accounts and heavily tormented by the manipulations of men and the elements. The last few years were brutal. With heavy heart I wandered back to see how it has fared. The fish were fewer and smaller but they were there. Perhaps there's HOPE. Taken Pearl Harbor Day 2008.
Here's what I and some friends used to find in this stream (photo currently being used by Cal Trout at their site).
Note the signature "arched thumb for dramatic effect".
