Local Fisherman Dies in Yosemite National Park
A local fisherman was found dead in Yosemite National Park near Windy Point, along Highway 140 this morning. Keith Robinson, 62, of Midpines, left his home after work to fish in Yosemite on August 17, 2009. When he failed to return home the next morning he was reported overdue to Yosemite dispatch.
Windy Point is a designated pull-out along the side of Highway 140 located just west of Arch Rock Entrance Station. Access to the river from the pull-out consists of steep rocky terrain.
