The Upper Owens just seems to be a good choice for any anglers destination on any trip up to the Bishop area.. Dries, streamers, and nymphs continue to take fish no matter what temperature or condition the Upper O seems to be experiencing. Currently at midday the midges come off and fish can be found feeding around almost every corner, try a griffiths gnat behind a small baetis pattern for top water success here. ..Small midge patterns continue to provide success. Tiger midges and midge emergers are good choices for nymph patters. Small PT’s and hares ears nymphs are also good choices.. For streamers pick your favorite one.. Technique for streamers is more important here.. The Upper Owens fish also do not mind very large streamers… Fishing has been solid here and one can expect to have a great fishing day up here with relative solitude.. Here below is a cuttbow hybrid I caught out of the Upper O in the last week..
