River now at 343 cfs. Near perfect flows at this release and great fishing in all areas of the river. Good quality rainbows and browns showing up and biting on heavily weighted nymph rigs. San Juan worms, Parallel Punk Perch, midges, PT’s, and Copper John’s are all good flies right now. We are now taking trip reservations for the East Walker. Book your trip here.

This fishery is open year around below the Bridgeport Reservoir dam to Nevada State line. Open year around in Nevada also.

Flows dropping rapidly here daily. Currently at 124 cfs and trending downward. Excellent water conditions with fish taking most dry flies in the right size presented properly. Fishing has been good from the campgrounds down and upstream. Stimulators, Caddis, Mayflies, and small hoppers have been great flies for the area on a 3-weight rod. We are now guiding this area and you can click herefor our trip request form.

 

Upper Owens River Fish Report 8/16/17

River now at an excellent flow rate at 67 cfs. Water is crystal clear above the Hot Creek confluence and the further up you travel. Fish are readily taking dry flies and droppers in the clear water above the bridge. The fish are scattered along the river in this section and you may have to do a bit of run and gun fishing. 3 or 4 weight rods are a great set up for these fish. They are very aggressive when taking a dry fly presented to them properly. Mosquitoes are still around in good numbers so juicing the skin up with bug spray wouldn’t hurt. 

The section upstream from the Benton Bridge is open year around with special regulations. Seasonal closures, and angling restrictions apply downstream from the bridge, check regulations before fishing in this section.

Flows now at 48 cfs.  Water looking really good now. Try dry fly and dropper combos along the far edges of the banks. Fish are eager to jump on whatever offering falls from the banks.

This is a year around fishery with special regs in place.

Crowley Lake Fish Report - 8/16/17

Some days “on fire” and some days you’ll have to move around. Fish searching all over McGee Bay for perch fry and damselfly nymphs. They can be caught in water as short as 5′ and all the way out to 20′ if fishing excessively long leaders in your thing. Our Parallel Punk Perch and Parallel Assassin Light have been fooling many large trout recently. You can pick these flies up in the area at Reagan’s Sporting Goods in Bishop and at the Crowley Lake General Store in Crowley. Crooked Creek, Little and Big Hilton, and McGee Bay have been good areas lately. Fish have been sinking back into the channel when the south wind comes up in the afternoon on some days and the catching can be phenomenal.
