    Second Book a Winner!

    Steve Beck's first book about trout fishing in Yosemite was certainly filled with plenty of information, but considering it talked about one of the most beautiful places in North America, was not aesthetically pleasing or visually stimulating. Gladly, the same cannot be said for his new book on the John Muir Trail. Beck, along with his publisher, have created a beautiful book far surpassing their previous effort. As before, the book is filled with plenty of information about the various lakes, creeks, rivers and streams along the trail, but this time, there are plenty of color photos to almost make you feel like you're there. There's so much to see, even a non-fisherman (person?) would find this book enjoyable. Bravo!

    Excellent fishing and hiking guide

    Any High Sierra fisherman or hiker would be delighted to have in his possession the new book entitled 'Trout Fishing the John Muir Trail' authored by Steve Beck. What an interesting and factual presentation with beautiful pictures and great insights into hiking and fishing the many lakes and streams along the trail! This book has greatly enhanced my desire to return to California to hike and fish the John Muir trail. A great resource book to have in your backpack. From a former California resident and frequent visitor to the High Sierras.

    Blunder Thunder

    Steve Beck's first book Yosemite Trout Guide is an excellent source and highly recommended. But not his second effort, Trout Fishing the John Muir Trail. The coverage of the fishing along the trail is spotty and incomplete. There is good coverage of the lakes near Mammoth Crest, but there is not even a mention of Rose Lake, with abundant Golden, or Marie Lake, with large Brook, less than 1/2 mile from Selden Pass, for example. The overall impression is that the author knows a few segments of the trail, but hiked others just to write the book. But the 2 stars are for being inaccurate and giving illegal advice. He reports Golden Stones in Virginia Lake, for example, when Golden Stones are an insect that only inhabits running water. In one chapter the author talks about building fires at the JM Pass stone hut and suggests bringing wood along to leave up there. He seems to be oblivious to the ban on wood fires above 10,000 feet. The Forest Service once upon a time supplied wood up there but no more. The hut is quaint but inconsistent with 'leave no trace.' From other comments its inferable that many of the author's camps also may have violated the 100' from water rule. There can be no praise for such basic mistakes. There are sound scientific reasons for the regulations that help the Forest and Park Services manage the wilderness, especially conservation of wood and woody debris in the high alpine habitat. The author should spend more time on the JMT and rewrite this book to clean up the mistakes and at least cover the best water.
