The Lower Owens has been flowing at an incredible 148 cfs until the last couple of days; it has now been cranked up to 216cfs as of 8/13. This is still a fishable flow and the Lower Owens has been on fire! A great amiocentrus caddis hatch has been getting the fish very excited in the early morning and evening making for some great dry action… during the day nymphing has been on fire! Nymph deep with caddis pupa and larva, all sorts of midge larva, Pheasant tails, Princes and WD’s… Flows at 216are still wade able and the water temps make for hungry fish… The wild trout section all the way down to Warm Springs road has had this caddis action. We will see where the flows go from here…
