Flows Have Finally Dropped to Decent Levels

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

Nicole Shugarts was still in shock after landing this nice rainbow! Devin Preston was her guide on the oars!

Flows have finally dropped to decent levels as of this report.  Current cfs is 275.  We are in full swing now with our drift boats and have been enjoying the excellent weather in the Bishop area.  There have been some sparse afternoon mayfly hatches and the next generations will follow shortly and concentrate the fish in the deeper pools and runs.  These are fun trips and often times we float all day down the river and seldom see another angler.  We have been using moderate sink tips and pulling #10 Loebergs and #8 Spruce-a-bu’s back to the boat with good results.  The fishing will only improve as we move along into the coming winter months too.  We can fish up to 3 anglers per boat and offer half day trips (4.5 – 5 hours) or full day trips (7 hours) to meet your needs.

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.
