Georges Creek Fishing Report

Georges Creek - Manzanar, CA (Inyo County)

by Tom Loe

This is a great area to hit this time of year. It can be hours of action with a light weight stick and some small dry flies or dry/dropper combos. Some of the best dry fly fishing in the sierra takes place down here, and there’s nothing like watching that wild brown or rainbow slowly rising to your perfectly presented fly. Elk Caddis, Parachute Adams, and midge patterns in #18-22 are best. You can attach a short dropper nymph about 2′ or so to your dry when the fish aren’t feeding on top. Good patterns are #18-20 copper tiger and zebra midges and #20 PT’s with or without flashbacks.

Season open year around.
