The Lower Owens flows have been adjusted to 123 cfs of water being delivered out of PV dam.. This level have been beneficial to floating and will most likely stick around these levels for some time. Fishing remains strong although this cold front with the high wind speed did slow things down a little. The hatch is still minimal with sporadic rises of fish here and there with not much rhyme or reason. Nymphing and streamers still continue to pull fish out of the depths. The # 16 midge emerger in dark green, olive or black continues to produce, hares ears and PT’s in similar sizes, The rob0 PT #14-18, and any sort of green caddis worm in the same sizes will produce fish. Steamers fished low and slow or swung off the banks stimulate strikes. Most colours of streamers have been working for us; greys, olives, browns and blacks. It will be interesting to see how active the fish are after this front passes. I am expecting them to be “on the chew”
