Hot Creek - Mammoth Lakes, CA (Mono County)

Flows at 9 cfs now with weed growth prevalent. Target the open lanes between them for the best success.  Different day to day here as more weeds hit the surface and begin to choke up the open water.  Dry fly fishing along the open stretches has been productive.  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. 


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.
