Mammoth Fly Fishing : Crowley Lake – 8.27.12

Crowley Lake continues to dazzle us with big trout of all three varieties been brought to hand every time we are out there. Cutthroat, Rainbow, and Brown trout are being boated daily in many different parts of the lake. Perch fry, and many sorts and color varieties of Chironomids have continued to take fish. The algae bloom seems to be holding off for the moment as the air temperature was much cooler this morning when we arrived.

Mammoth Fly Fishing: Upper Owens River – 8.23.12

The upper Owens is down to a low flow of 64 CFS. Hoppers and Caddis are being eaten on the surface throughout the day.  We are not seeing the big fish that swim in upper Owens River from Crowley Lake recently but we are getting some very nice standard size Trout consistently. Attractor patterns such as Robo PT's, Green Rock Worms and Prince Nymphs and red Copper Johns are just a few of the patterns that will take fish,  all in sizes # 16-20. Various leggy hopper patterns in # 12-14,  And Elk Hair Caddis patterns and similar patterns to the rising pods of smaller fish #18-20.
