The Los Angeles River beckons, and this is the right time for you to get out and enjoy it.
If you fly fish, bike, hike, bird watch, it’s time to check out this 51-mile-long waterway know as the Los Angeles River. This blog will keep you up-to-date on the latest from our own homegrown waters. Of course, the latest development is the opening of the Los Angeles River Recreation Zone, which runs from Fletcher Bridge south some two and a half miles.
And remember, now through Labor Day, MRCA rangers are checking licenses! It’s cheaper to purchase a resident fishing license for $46 than to pay more than $450 in court.
For the first time in 70 years, it’s legal to get into the water and fly fish, fish or kayak. Remember, you still can’t legally swim, and it’s also illegal to have your dog accompany you on the river (although, you can still walk him on the bike path).
As I’ve reported on the river, my scope has also widened to the San Gabriel Mountains, and the watershed that feeds our river.
If there are stories you’d like to see reported, or tips you have, please post them.
