Sometimes referred to as the Middle Owens, this section of water is known for its wild and willing browns! The Gorge fishes more like an alpine stream where a dry fly is readily smacked hatch or not. This section of river is surrounded by vertical cliff wall from 200-300′ feet high.
To access this section of water the angler must be willing to take a decent hike in, adding to the adventure. The water within consists of classic pocket water, riffles, runs and some pools spread through the entire gorge. Turn over a rock and one finds caddis, stoneflies, midges and various mayflies. On a windy afternoon many different terrestrials find their way down over the cliff walls and into the water. Truly a unique part of the Lower Owens.
