Just look at it, sitting there so peacefully. Nobody around to take away from its serenity. The Merced River (you thought we were talking about Half Dome?) is a forgotten treasure lost in the granite faces and waterfalls that dominate the landscape of Yosemite National Park. Nearly 4 million people travel through Yosemite’s majestic valley each year, but rarely do the visitors take notice of the Merced River—arguably the most overlooked river this state has to offer. This fly-fishing chapter describes the "where, when, and how" for fishing in this area. It includes a full-page map and information on the known hatches, suggested equipment to use, the best flies to use, season, limits, nearby accommodations, and camping.
