The Upper Owens has some interesting flows going on right now below and above the Hot Creek confluence.. Both sections are fishable, yet high, with some dry fly and nymphing and streamer action. Water is cold yet fishable with heavy set-ups… look for the slower pools with definate seams to fish along.. if there is foam holding there is probably fish under it.. Tiger Midges, Disco midges, and midge dries will take fish.. Pheasant Tails, Hares Ears and bright Egg patterns will also get fish.. Fish the nymphs is sizes #16-18.. Midges #18-20.. Larger Streamers in browns and blacks will also produce.. On top Elk Hair Caddis, Griffiths Gnats, and Adams patters with trick upper o fish to the surface.. This fishery will get better as the water warms and the flows subside a little..
