fly fishing bishop ca for big red cutthroat trout

The Eastern Sierra Creek Fishing since opener has been great! Flows are high yet clear. The cooler night temps are freezing the upper elevation snowpacks and ice at night, therefore letting the runoff continue slowly, instead of a fast dirty and dangerously high runoff.... Not many terrestrial  patterns are being fished yet, as once again the cool nights are keeping the terrestrial bug population at bay. Under the water is an entirely different story as the fish are warming up to the spring days sun and making up for lost time not eating while under the last winters snow.  Nymphs of all sorts and varieties are taking fish, mostly of the attractor type. A few examples are; Prince Nymphs #12-18, Pheasant Tail variations (Robo, Soft Hackles, ect) #12-18, Soft Hackles #12-18, Egg Patterns #14-18, San Juan Worms of all sorts #8-14. Streamers passed on front of an aggressive Trouts face stands a good chance of getting violently eaten. The Marvel Spinner Bugger is one effective pattern over here right now in the Eastern Sierra Creeks. Check back for more updates as water levels can change frequently.
