Upper Owens River Fly Fishing : Mammoth Lakes CA – 11.21.14

0 November 21, 2014 in Fishing Reports by Sierra Trout Magnet
The Upper Owens is flowing low and clear and if you come upon a deep hole a horse of a Trout is near!  As my little rhyme implies  the horses have spread out thru the entire system and the weary and patient angler will be able to extract the possible Trout of a lifetime!  Hard to land these fish will test every bit of fish fighting experience the fly angler has!  Look for dark parts of the river and place your offering over and over to see what comes out to eat.  We are using basically similar patterns as my last Upper Owens River report.  Come on up and test your skills!  image image image image image image Posted by STM Fly Fishing - Bishop CA Read More

Lower Owens River Fly Fishing : Bishop CA – 11.17.14

0 November 17, 2014 in Fishing Reports by Sierra Trout Magnet
The premiere Wild Brown Trout fishery of California, the Lower Owens River is now fishing like we are used to seeing it in the fall and winter months!  Flows are low and clear!  Some mornings can be better than later in the afternoon but the persistent angler will always find a reward here!  Dry Fly action can be ravenous in some areas and has been happening right around lunchtime.  Refer to my posted video below!  Mayflies seem to be the main prey floating on top the water at this point.  Various Baetis patterns in sizes #16-20 have been taking fish of all sizes.  This should only get better as the hatch becomes Riverwide and predictable!  image image image image image image Posted by STM Fly Fishing - Bishop CA Read More

Upper Owens River Fly Fishing : Mammoth Lakes CA – 11.10.14

0 November 10, 2014 in Fishing Reports by Sierra Trout Magnet
The Upper Owens River is flowing clear and low!  The water is absolutely gorgeous and the oversized fish are spooky.  Throughout the system very Large fish are collecting in various pools, deep runs and riffle laden drop offs.  One day they are out the next they are stuck next to the bank.  Fish for them with various solid proven patterns in greens,  Browns,  and pinks/orange.  Once hooked be ready to move the rod tip against the fish no matter which way he goes.  One of their tricks is to wedge themselves in any crevice on the deep shadowy banks.  Sometime you might even have to run to keep the advantage in your favour!  image image Posted by STM Fly Fishing - Bishop CA Read More

Lower Owens River Fly Fishing : Bishop CA – 11.3.14

0 November 3, 2014 in Fishing Reports by Sierra Trout Magnet
The Lower Owens River has been fishing great!  Larger fish appear or be on the prowl, and are consistently being taken.  Pods of rising fish can be found in flat foam seams throughout the day in certain parts of the vast Lower Owens system.  Fish for these guys with small Mayfly patterns trailed by a RS2 if you cut get them on the day alone .  Nymphs have seriously been taking some nice fish!  #16 BBack Emergers,  Caddis Worms,  and PT variants are picking up all sorts of hungry Browns and some Rainbows from the river.  Fishing is actually great all the way down to Collins and Warm Springs area which is south of town.  Stay tuned for many good reports to come from this river throughout the coming months.  image image image image image image image Posted by STM Fly Fishing - Bishop CA Read More

Crowley Lake Fly Fishing : Mammoth Lakes, CA – 11.3.14

0 November 3, 2014 in Fishing Reports by Sierra Trout Magnet
Crowley Lake continues to fish awesome!  Boats have been pulled and docks and floating toilets gone.  Temperatures are cooling nicely at night yet still providing warm sunny weather conditions through the day. The fly angler still has many accesses along the banks of this awesome Lake. From the back side to Crooked Creek foot access and road access is available. This time of year one can pull various Streamers with the hopes of landing something you may think is bottom at first.  :)  Fish the same midges we have been fishing most of the year.  image image Posted by STM Fly Fishing - Bishop CA Read More

Upper Owens River Fly Fishing : Mammoth Lakes CA – 11.2.14

The Upper Owens is flowing clear, low, and slow..  Things are starting to turn on as the winter conditions put fish of all sizes on the move!  Big beasts up from Crowley are starting to be found throughout the system.  The clear water just makes it a but more of a challenge but nevertheless the fishing is getting stellar on the Upper Owens River!  Fish are taking many well placed Attractor nymphs in #12-18.  It is good to have something of colour on the Nymph setup.  Streamers of various types and sizes, when well placed will also get rewarded with the tug of your life on the Upper Owens!  Stay tuned for many good reports to come off this river as we will be spending a lot of our time winter months hunting the weary and large Trout of this system.  image image Posted by STM Fly Fishing - Bishop CA Read More

Lower Owens River Fly Fishing : Bishop, CA – 10.9.14

0 October 9, 2014 in Fishing Reports by Sierra Trout Magnet
The jewel of the Eastern Sierra, the Lower Owens River is producing some great Trout as usual!  All sections of the Wild Brown Trout water are fishing very well with the cooler nights entering the Eastern Sierra. We are seeing great fish being extracted every day we are out there.  Flows are an amazing 180cfs and water Temps are prime in the Mid Fifties.  This water flow makes for very happy Trout and easy wading.  Fish have been very selective,  keying in on very specific insects most days.  If your not in the ballpark with your Fly patterns the Wild Trout of the Lower Owens River will not let you see them dancing on the end of your line.  For Fly patterns underneath try some green Caddis Worms and/or diving Caddis around size #16. Mayfly Emergers with a CDC case or shuck,  PT's and similar Nymph patterns will also place you in the scoring section.   Standard Midge patterns in #18-20 are also strong some days,  we tend to lean toward Midge Emergers when we fish midges wet. #18. Dry Fly action is picking up with the adult versions of the bugs mentioned earlier.  For now, earlier and later are the time to seek out Dry Fly fishing in certain areas of the river system. Streamer can always work well here if fished absolutely correctly.  Stay tuned for the Lower Owens to keep going off into the fall and winter seasons.  image image image Posted by STM Fly Fishing - Bishop CA Read More
