Lower Owens River Fly Fishing : Bishop CA report – 11.20.16

The Lower Owens River Fly Fishing continues to make us local Fly anglers very happy.   We are seeing a definite larger average size of fish over the last few months.  It appears the lower and somewhat harsher water conditions of the last few years possibly weeded out some of the weaker & smaller fish.  Then this summer we saw actual runoff,   the flows pumped to 500cfs,  this sheer volume of water provided more protein in the form of insects and bait fish passing by for the carnivorous trout to consume.  We are starting to see dry Fly action more regularly from around 10:30-1:00pm in popular fish holes throughout the river.  Fish the appropriate patterns mentioned in my last reports.  Lots of Midge and Baetis  Emergers...

Bishop Fly Fishing Report : Lower Owens River – June 13, 2010

Good news! It looks as if us Lower Owens wild brown trout fans are going to get one more go around on the Lower Owens River here in Bishop this summer. I have received word that the Lower Owens is on its way down to 300cfs because of the additional runoff flowing into the Lower Owens river bed south of Bishop. Most of you know this is a great flow to fish the LO. Fish are out and moving around as well as the bugs. Czech nymphing works very well at these flows as you can get up on the fish more without being noticed. Also these flows are perfect for taking out my driftboat which I will be doing in the next few days. Be ready for more reports on this river as it is 340 cfs as I type this and should be around 300 in the next couple of days. For those of you who have had the opportunity to fish the Lower Owens in June at these flows, you know how great the fishing can be as the temps reach a perfect trout temperature of 50-57 degrees which turns on their metabolism converting them into bug eating machines. Water is clear and ready to fish with the very limited pressure the Lower O has received as of late due to the recent high flows. Stay Tuned....
