Upper Owens continues to go off! Amazing fishing with 18-24" fish roaming the entire system and devouring any good source of protein their instincts deem worthy. Attractor patterns #12-18 with a spawning hued theme along with correctly fished streamers will seduce these perfectly finned fish. But watch out! Without proper fish playing skills these fish will have you telling the story of another big one that got away.
The Upper Owens is still flowing low and semi-clear and has been absolutely beautiful recently. Above normal temps and windless days have been gracing the fly anglers who visit this unique spring fed river. Above all the fish the Upper Owens River are absolutely world class right now. Perfect full finned fish above 20" are throughout the system and willing to eat the correct patterns. Fish for these trout as if fishing for Steelhead. Attractor patterns in spawning colours and flashy greens and coppers are just a few suggestions. Landing these special large fish is as good as it gets in the US. Stay tuned for much more to come!!
The Lower Owens River continues to flow low and clear at a rate of 80-85 cfs. Fishing has been Absolutely Great! All sorts of perfectly coloured and pointy finned wild trout of all sizes have been landing on the net of some very happy anglers. The river is very accessible at these flows making wading very easy. Dry Fly action seems to be constant on very small Midges and Baetis in certain areas of the river! Fish are taking all sorts of Baetis and Midge Emerger #18-20, Caddis Emergers and worms #16-18. On the surface fish Small Midge dries and Baetis patterns #20-22. Fish can be caught on streamers as usual fish your favorite bugger or muddler here to see some fine specimens of Lower O trout. Stay Tuned for more dry fly action to come!
