Pleasant Valley Reservoir Fishing Report

Pleasant Valley Reservoir - Bishop, CA (Inyo County)

by Tom Loe

Water level is on the low side here, so try and locate the deepest areas. Be sure to fish pocket water in front of and behind the rock breaks as they can all hold fish this time of year. I like the transition area where the river meets the reservoir. It is deeper and slower here, and the fish will take small nymphs fished under an indicator or a dry/dropper setup. Make sure to keep the drag out of your drift here as the fish have longer to inspect your presentation under the slow moving water.

This fishery is open year around.
