Pleasant Valley Reservoir Fishing Report

Pleasant Valley Reservoir - Bishop, CA (Inyo County)

by Tom Loe

Careful on the banks by the river. Freezing mud can be very slippery and cause a cold water dip. Water is clear as gin here. Fish are starting to transition more to winter feeding mode and holding areas. Dry/droppers in the slower sections still accounting for decent numbers. Now is the time to start focusing on the slower deeper water as the temperatures settle in. Copper Tiger, Zebra, Gillies, and Broken-back pattern midges are a solid dropper choice this time of year. Keep them in sizes #16-22. As an upper/dry #18-20 Parachute Adams, BWO’s, and #16-22 Elk Hair Caddis are great choices.

This fishery is open year around.
