Winter carp fly fishing ‘likes’ the L.A. River

Ah, the wile golden bonefish fell for a humble L.A. River egg pattern. (Jim Burns)

Look at it like this: It’s middle January; we just finished the worst cold snap in 20 years; and, presto, today temps are in the high 70s. That’s why the rest of the country hates us, folks.

And, the carp are going nuts on the river. Sure, you could book your ticket for Belize, hang with your buddies for a week at El Pescador and have a heck of a good time. All for about $1,100 for three nights, plus $500 in air fare.

Your inner bone fisherman is gonna like our river. Really. (Jim Burns)

Or … you could take your buddies down to the river and get into our own game fish for the price of some gas and a couple of tasty burritos.

See you on the river, Jim Burns
