|Time to Hang It Up
Decided to check out our favorite local creek one last time before the summer heat plays havoc to the place. All I can say is the place is done. The jewel of SoCal local fishing is no longer. Foolishly the Forest Service has graded the road to allow easy access into this area. I don't understand the logic. The roadside is littered with weekend idiots who trash the place. Graffiti is on every rock. This area, for the most part, was pristine. Soon the knuckleheads that trash the lower section will migrate toward this area and in no time it'll be a shitpit like much of the LA mountains. It's already started as I've seen more tagging than before. The fishing has also declined considerably. Not one fish over 7 inches today. All were 5-7 inch range. What a sorry state. It's sad to see. It's not going to get any better either. Water levels are low and summer is just around the corner. This place is fucked.
