The Hoppers are Coming!

Hot Creek - Mammoth Lakes, CA (Mono County)

Don Berry wanted to kill a morning on the creek and got into some great numbers with dry flies!

The hoppers are coming! The hoppers are coming! Yes, you read correctly. It’s finally grasshopper time on Hot Creek. Throw any decent hopper imitation along the bank edges and in the riffles and get ready to set that hook. Hot Creek has made a fantastic come back and it’s on a steady pace to returning to the fishery it once was. This program is great for half day trips in the mornings with no need for waders. We have had some fun and memorable days this summer getting our clients on some rising trout through the mornings. #18 mayflies, #18-22 midges, #20 Brassies, and egg and SD worm patterns have been getting some serious looks and takes from the resident trout
