This was my first trip hiking north from the dam at Willow Springs lake.The lake was very crowded Friday afternoon, but as soon as I dropped down below the spillway it was totally quiet and I didn't see another person until Saturday morning. I hiked in about 1.7 miles and setup camp right where the trail turns from pleasant to obnoxious. Nice spot! I tried some fly fishing before dark but had only a few strikes. On Saturday I hiked back out to the car and spent a few hours mountain biking in the area. After lunch I returned to my camp and found quite a few folks out day hiking and a few other fishermen. After an hour shower, I hit the creek again for some more fishing. This time I went downstream and began the log jumping and rock hopping. There are lots of fish here, all small, I caught 3 the same size. This place is really surprisingly quiet, especially at night.
