Fly Fishing in Yosemite 
Can anyone recommend a good campground in or around Yosemite near a place where there's some good fly fishing? My good friend from Australia will be coming over for business and he managed to squeeze a few extra days for us to catch up. He's gotten into the whole fly fishing thing so I figured it's a great way to spend a few days with him.

Re: Fly Fishing in Yosemite 
We stayed at the Toulumne Meadows campground last summer, and it was pretty okay. Paid about $20/night. No hookups, but there is tap water. It's very close to the river where you can do some fly fishing with your friends. But from what I know, that campground won't be opened until mid-July. You can try Wawona campground which is located on the southern side of the park. That one is opened all year round. It's quite near the river as well so you might be able to do some fly fishing there too. The rate is also the same as Toulumne Meadows.

Re: Fly Fishing in Yosemite 
Are you planning to go using an RV or go tent camping? If you're going tent camping, I'd suggest booking with Virginia Lakes Backpack Outfit. We made some camping arrangements with them to entertain a few of our friends from overseas (they only do tent camping). The rates may look like it's expensive, but it's definitely worth it because the guides stay with you, provide the food and camping gear, set up camp and do all the cooking. All you bring is your bedroll, personal gear, fishing equipment and a sense of adventure. They can also provide tents and gear for you if you don't have any of them, which might be better since I'm not quite sure how likely your friend will be able to bring his fishing gear on the plane.

If you're going to bring your RV, you may want to try Indian Flat Campground which offers RV sites with hook-ups, tent sites, and two cabins. KOA also has a campground at Midpines. They are both located along the Merced River, which is a really good fly fishing spot.
