Eastern Sierra Overlanding & Fly Fishing

Overlanding to Fly fish!!! What a great combination. In this video we head up the old 395 to hit up some higher elevations in the Easter Sierra to overland for 4 days & fish for some California Golden Trout.

This trip did not disappoint. I was able to break out the drone and get some decent footage of our drive up, as well as the South Fork of the Kern River. Weather was perfect, but the mosquitos were out…somehow I managed to not get a single bite.

I hope everyone enjoys this video & are all healthy & safe!!!

    Man, you and your family inspire me. Can’t wait to try a recipe and blaze a trail.

  2. Carlos Herrera on November 19, 2020 at 8:53 pm

    That was a nice trip, good eating, fishing and having a great time with friends.

  3. Frank Martinez on November 19, 2020 at 8:54 pm

    Love the video but was in necessary to air down. I only air down on muddy sandy and rocky trails, that looked like nice dry dirt. Would like to see some more on board shots. Thumbs up👍

    Cmon man don’t drop the trout

    Enjoyed the Monache Meadows video. Was there for the first time last week and agree this is a beautiful area. I agree with others keep the cooking footage. Like you I enjoy whipping up a good meal because it always taste so damn good when outdoors. Fly fishing was pretty good. No Goldens but lots of bo’s, Browns and hybrids. Thanks for putting in the time it takes to produce the footage.

    Great overlanding

  7. John McCaffery on November 19, 2020 at 8:59 pm

    Nice to see you added Sierra to the family. How does she do going up and down the ladder to the RTT? Great vid as always, and don’t mind the cooking at all!

  8. Steve Arita on November 19, 2020 at 9:00 pm

    Great video, just happened to stumble on our channel, I subscribed and gave you a great thumbs up!

  9. Surfn stocks on November 19, 2020 at 9:02 pm

    Pretty funny that I was thinking to myself about 1/3rd the way into your video that you have way too many nick nacks for my liking and then someone said" you should do a nick nack video" Lol. Anyway I wouldn’t be able to find any of it even if I were attracted to such contraptions (or distractions maybe). Everyone has their own way to get out into nature so I applaud you for putting the time in to share. Thanks!

  10. Gunnutz71 on November 19, 2020 at 9:02 pm

    I watch your videos for the cooking.

  11. Henrik M on November 19, 2020 at 9:03 pm

    Love the cooking as well as the wheeling, fishing, etc. Good mix IMO. I’m curious about that table I saw in the background. Do you like it? What brand is it?

  12. Spud Doright on November 19, 2020 at 9:04 pm

    How crowded is it getting up there now that people are out and about? I’d love to get up there for fishing, but I really don’t like crowds… been considering a trip to Southern Utah mountains for some fishing.

  15. MarioT's CJResto on November 19, 2020 at 9:06 pm

    Sweet Rig

  16. john ossola on November 19, 2020 at 9:07 pm

  17. OverlandTrax on November 19, 2020 at 9:08 pm

    Nice video, keep them coming 👍

  18. Soul Surfer on November 19, 2020 at 9:09 pm

    Great Video. Amazing camping area. You gotta share the lat and long for this spot. Try keeping the windows down it may help help your pup with throwing up.

  19. Joe Cerda on November 19, 2020 at 9:11 pm

    Keep showing the cooking!

  20. MarioT's CJResto on November 19, 2020 at 9:11 pm

    Marco the Trail Chef, now I skipped the Skottle option and picked up a Jim Beam Cast Iron Grilling Wok

  21. Mark R on November 19, 2020 at 9:12 pm

    How long have you been fly fishing?

  22. James Houser on November 19, 2020 at 9:12 pm

    Nice video, this was the first time I watched one of your videos. New subscriber. Makes me want to hop in the Jeep and head for the hills, get in some flyfishing. Stay safe.

  23. MOUM on November 19, 2020 at 9:15 pm

    awesome video! We also post overlanding videos with our jeep on our channel.. Feel free to visit!!

  24. Richard Ayon on November 19, 2020 at 9:16 pm

    Keep the cooking to me it makes it more of a family channel there’s good mixture of content something we watch as a family and all get to enjoy our favorite parts

  25. dannyagm1974 on November 19, 2020 at 9:16 pm

    How can I get there the same spot thanks

  26. Travis Troupe on November 19, 2020 at 9:17 pm

    Cool video. I love this area. Do you plan out potential camp sites in advance? If so, are you using apps like google earth or are you finding spots because you know the area?

  27. Mojavejohn on November 19, 2020 at 9:18 pm

    Nice video…Fish-on!

  28. OccasionalGamer on November 19, 2020 at 9:18 pm

    Chimichurri sauce is the bomb, especially on grilled steak!

  29. greyghost1101 on November 19, 2020 at 9:20 pm

    Don’t change your video style. Those that don’t like the cooking can always fast forward

  30. ROMANS 13:4 on November 19, 2020 at 9:23 pm

    Thank you for the time making this video I’m a first-time viewer I hit the Subscribe button and look forward to catching more of your videos John in San Diego

  31. gilgrc on November 19, 2020 at 9:25 pm

    What a great video! New subscriber. I just love places like this, the beautiful Mother Nature. Would you be kind to let me know the camping site or coordinates where you set up camp? I’d greatly appreciate it.

  32. Hector Gallegos on November 19, 2020 at 9:26 pm

    Does anyone know the coordinates to this camp site next to the river?

  33. Michael Estrella on November 19, 2020 at 9:28 pm

    I was waiting for a few fish to get fried up with all the works. Man that was my only disappointment 😞. Other than that like all your outdoors adventures cooking and views of the outdoor life. Don’t stop cooking cause it’s part of your channel and what you bring to your adventures. I look forward to meal time with the 395JNKY family outing.

  34. Away907 on November 19, 2020 at 9:28 pm

    Hey, thanks for another nice video and beautiful spot! Why you messing with air pressure to got the roads any stock Prius can go?

  35. Tyler Miller on November 19, 2020 at 9:28 pm

    This is one of the dopest videos i’ve seen, good shit!!

  36. Dillon O on November 19, 2020 at 9:32 pm

    First ever video I watched on your channel and overlanding in general. I think your production quality is awesome and content is easy to ingest. When you talked about cooking I would agree. One word of advice, search for Guga foods/sous vide everything. He has really good B-Roll footage of grilling. I think you could incorporate something like that and keep people’s attention in the same way. Keep making great content for us that are new to the hobby to enjoy.

    June 27, 2020—Been a LONG time since I’ve done any fishing in Calif. (I’m from the Reno area) Anyway, used to take one of my dogs with me to hit the north fork of the Feather River way west of Portola/Quincy. And no, ain’t saying where my honey spot is either. Caught a lot of smallmouth bass and rainbows there using nightcrawlers. Gwen was a fish attracted fish some how…she’d be on a boulder looking down on the water and here would come the bass to look back at her. But then came the day she got too close to the edge of the boulder and started sliding down and PLOP into the water she went. She was like one of those cartoon dogs, sliding forward while all 4 of her leg were trying to go backwards. Her eyes got as big as golf balls as she kept going forward. She dropped about 3 feet in hitting the water and was panicking as in what do I do, what do I do? Put my rod to one side and leaned over a rock and when she got within grabbing distance, grabbed her by her collar. Not easy trying to lift up a 75 pound plus soaking wet dog, but we got it done. RIP Gwen.

  40. Peggy Thusing on November 19, 2020 at 9:37 pm

    I really enjoyed this video, thank you very much for sharing

  41. Ron Cook on November 19, 2020 at 9:37 pm

    do you think a Subaru Forester could handle this drive?

  42. John Hollis on November 19, 2020 at 9:40 pm

    I never have a problem with you cooking. Great video. Get up the great work.

  43. Aaron Ross on November 19, 2020 at 9:40 pm

    Good stuff! I’d really like to catch a Golden! I’ve never known of a place where you could drive so close.

  44. shai zahavi on November 19, 2020 at 9:43 pm

    try this i have and love it , The MORRFlate Off Road 4 Tire Inflation Deflation™ Kit works easy and fast , love your videos

  45. Glenn Young on November 19, 2020 at 9:43 pm

    My Dad used to cut timber up there on the Kern Plateau back in the sixties and early seventies. Logging camp was off of Mahogany creek road just past Fish creek campground. Never made it to Monache Meadow back then. I sure want to go there now after watching your video. Thank you.

    FYI the weir is in place to isolate the Goldenseal from non native species. Unfortunately with the advent of DNA it has been determined that the weir was to late. The Goldens caught in that SFK are fun, look like a Golden but they are hybrids. I think you need to get to Volcano Creek to get a 100% native Golden. Never the less catching fish is fun.

  48. Christopher Martinez on November 19, 2020 at 9:50 pm

    Good cooking

  49. steven escobar on November 19, 2020 at 9:50 pm

    Yeah man keep the cooking, it’s all apart of the adventure.

  50. Rick Dobbins on November 19, 2020 at 9:51 pm

    Keep cooking! There’s a million offroading videos I can watch with NO cooking!! Enjoy your ch!
