The Upper Owens continues to harbor some big healthy fish.. A few more seem to have arrived, but, you do really have to work to get them. The monument to crowley section is not anything special at this time. The fish seem to be favoring the larger holes above the bridge. Roads are clear and access is not a problem. The usual patterns with a little flash are doing the trick when passed by the lips of big fish. Patterns such as; Robo PT’s, FB Hares Ear, Sparkle Trigger Nymph and Bubbleback emergers all in sizes #16-20 are just a few to try. San Juans added to those nymph rigs also raise the hookup ratio. Big streamers are also an option here.. Use a weighted streamer or a sinking line for this.. your favorite larger streamer will do the trick here.
