Lots of Fish on the Move!

Owens River - Section 3 - Upper (above Crowley) - Eastern Sierra, CA (Mono County)

by Jim Elias

Water is still stained, and worse so below the confluence.  Lots of fish on the move right now, between here and McGee.  it's been a little crowded with everyone trying to get a few of the big cuttys. If you see fish in shallow water, leave them be.  Honestly it just makes more fish to catch in the coming years.  Ripping fish off of their reds does nothing but remove potential fish from the system. Stick to knee deep water or deeper and you'll pick up some of the rainbows or browns that came up the river for the egg feast.  You will also see fish that are staging, or have already spawned in the deeper water.   Flows 100cfs
