A crew from Caltrans clears the road on Tioga Pass just in time to allow brave and hearty anglers access to high-country fishing spots during this weekendâ€™s fishing opener. Caltrans has re-opened the pass (State Route 120 West/Tioga Pass Road) to the east Yosemite Park Entrance Gate. The highway will remain closed beyond the park. â€śUsers can access S.R. 120 for recreational activities from the junction of U.S. 395 at Lee Vining up to the park entrance closure gate,â€ť a press release from Caltrans states. This partial opening is dependent on favorable weather.
