Among the San Gabriel River places I like to visit from time-to-time is Dickerson’s River Bottom, close to Circleville and not far from feeding into Granger Lake. It is one of those go-to places for those looking for white bass. Fly fishermen, like the two friends posted tonight, love its peacefulness and beauty. Although not a fly fisherman, I love it, too. The only problem is the difficulty involved in getting to the river. More than one time, I’ve had falls making my way along the rocky, root-laden trails. Sometimes, however, at least once or twice a year, it’s worth it. After all, it’s the San Gabriel River. What could be nicer? I see fly fishing, heck, maybe any fishing, to be like photography … a meditation, a therapy.
