Fishing in the Trees

This lucky angler is fishing at one of the forks of Lake Isabella.  I'll have to go back and do my research, but the lake was created by allowing the river to flood over the old town.  I have fished in the lake and managed to lose a lot of lures in those trees!  I haven't been fishing in over 30 years and aside from riding along in the boat, don't really have any interest in fishing!  (That's how I feel about golfing, too - I'll ride along in the cart, just don't expect me to swing the club...)

We drove up to the lake to see the water levels. It's incredible what a little rain can do!  Last year, the water levels were really low, so it was heartening to see how many people were out enjoying the cool summer weather.

It's amazing to me that trees can stand in that much water and not basically drown for lack of a better word. It does look wonderful, though, and I know that I've heard of Lake Isabella somewhere in the recesses of my ancient mind!

I fished when I was a kid, but haven't since returning from the Army in 69. I never did figure out why.

Beautiful spot.
