Owens River - Middle Fish Report for 4-17-2018
Middle Owens River Fishing Report
Owens River - Middle - Bishop, CA (Inyo County)
by Tom Loe
The cooler weather and abating run-off have prompted the LADWP to close the flood gates a little. Flows have leveled off at 300cfs. making for much better water conditions on the drift boat runs. Wading the wild trout section remains difficult at this level. Still a decent BWO hatch coming off with a few stoneflies showing. Streamers like Spruce-A-Bu’s, Loebegrs, and Crystal Leeches used with a heavy sinking tip line are the right call under these conditions. Heavily weighted nymph rigs with standard; or parallel Assassins, flashback pheasant tails, and parallel punk perch can get you grabs below an Under-Cator.
If you would like to go fly fishing with Sierra Drifters give them a call at (760) 935 4250 and for more information visit their website www.sierradriters.com.
