Hot Creek: Very Good

Great opportunities for those willing to make the effort. It is not going to be as easy as last spring here and it will be after March, and perhaps April before you can drive to the pullouts in the canyon here. I have current pics of the conditions above. PT's, WD-40's, BWO's, and small crystal tigers and zebras are all good right now. #16-22. Try pulling a streamer through the larger water for some vicious takes! Keep those leaders nine or more feet.

The Interpretative Site located between the HC Ranch and the hatchery is the easiest area to fish right now, and is jugged with fish. It is ILLEGAL to fish on the west side of HC at the immediate confluence of Mammoth Creek. Mammoth Creek is currently closed until the opener on April 26th. You must walk down to the Kiosk here also as the road is closed.

The pressure picked up over the holiday weekend for the first time this winter and rivaled that of a summer weekend for sure.
