Owens River - Middle - Bishop, CA (Inyo County)

by Tom Loe

398 cfs seems to be the general flow rate as of late. Some bigger fish have been making a showing recently along with some good numbers of school sized fish. We have been fishing our sink tip lines and pulling streamers like Loebergs and Spruce-a-bu’s to draw these fish out of hiding. We have been running drift boat trips here recently and will continue to so long as the water level holds. If you are planning on driving in this area, take caution. Many of the roads are still holding free standing puddles and very soft mud. Deep ruts on some of the access roads leading to the river are covered in water and can be deceiving to the unsuspecting motorist.
