Help me pick a destination please!

Hi All,

I'm a novice fly fisher and have 8/15-8/18(or19) totally free and would like to go fishing! I'm located in southern california and would like to travel somewhere. Any suggestions?

A few qualifiers:

I'm not looking for an impossible challenge (would like to be actually catching fish for this trip)

Would be traveling by myself

Not looking to spend tons of money

Prefer not to go after trout as we have that locally

Will need a guide most likely

THANKS!

Still, how much money do you have? A guide is $500 itself.

What rods do you have?

3,5,8wts I am aware guides cost money, the benefit is that the cost can often include gear to use :-)

I will take you into Sequoia/Kings Canyon and give you a place to shack up at the base of the mountain.

I'd be down some other weekend, hoping to go a little farther from home on this trip. Let me know though!

San Diego has a lot of option.
