The Elbow Creek stretch along the Mokelumne

The Elbow Creek stretch of the Mokelumne is a microcosm of the Sierra Nevada trout streams. It is a roadless stretch of water that gets very little fishing pressure and it offers the angler tumbling brook trout water, meandering meadow stretches with wary browns, and willow lined runs with feisty rainbows. You can use your nymphs and wooly worms for the brookie water, your classic dry patterns on the rainbow runs, and splash noisy hopper flies in the grassy meadows.

Reuniting with the roommates

My junior year of college I lived off campus at a place called "The Blockhouse". The complex was a series of perfectly-shaped, two-story squares with a pool in the middle. It was just short of a mile from campus.

Lance Armstrong's titles? Whole era is worthless

PARIS (AP) - It surely would be have been more useful for his sport if Tyler Hamilton hadn't waited until this week to tell us what he knows about doping in the Lance Armstrong era.

Midnight fishing offers different angling perspective

I always figured that writing an outdoor column had to be extremely easy. How hard can it be? You go fishing and then lie about it. Isn't that what all fishermen do anyway? Wrong. A couple nights ago, I kept wracking my brain, trying to get sufficiently inspired to write something worthy of you folks. Nothing seemed to work, not even wearing my fishing hat. Suddenly I had a brilliant idea! Instead of worrying about it, I'd go out in the fresh air and clear the cobwebs out of my mind by doing a little fishing.

Replacement refs: NFL deserves penalty for arrogance

Sometimes you put a foot down wrong and don't find out for a week or two that you actually dislocated a hip. That's how it's going to be if the NFL sticks with its plan to start the regular season with replacement referees - from mild annoyance to major pain to humongous regret. And all because the people in charge are too used to getting their way.

Take a legislator fishing with you

As you may be aware, I have more than a passing interest in politics. Now you may be asking yourself "What's that have to do with fishing, hunting and other outdoor pursuits?" The answer is "Almost everything." Whether you want to legalize mountain lion hunting because there are too many lions and attacks on women and children are becoming common, or if you want more trout planted in your favorite stream, the answers you get are part of a political process.
