Flows Coming Down Here But Crowley Lake is Still Rising!

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

by Tom Loe

Flows coming down here but Crowley Lake is still rising. It shouldn’t be too long now before the LADWP has to start letting water out of the lake and thus increasing flows on the river. Bishop Creek has a lot of water coming down and this will make the areas below Line St. very difficult to fish until the river recedes some. It is fishable above the bridge but foot access is extremely limited. The previous winter’s growth along the banks has made it tough for walking and wading and that is why accessing this river by boat is the best way to fish here. We fish with sinking tip lines and streamer patterns to get our flies down to the fish. If we see a substantial decrease in flows we may start drifting here again, but in the meantime there are better fish catching opportunities.

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.
