Hot Creek Fish Report

Hot Creek - Mammoth Lakes, CA (Mono County)

by Tom Loe

Ummm, Ummm, good! The gate remains closed but the hike into the canyon is easy currently. Conditions will even get better as the flows increase from Mammoth Creek.

Have a good selection of M+M's (midges and mayflies) on hand in the #18-22 range.

Dry dropper combo rigs using Pt's, WD-40's and bird's nest patterns under a larger dry like a Stimulator or Sofa Pillow will do the trick.

The cast and carve idea is catching on like gangbusters and it can get pretty darn cozy on the weekends here. You may want to bundle up and do the casting in the morn-carve the corn in the afternoon during the congested periods for a while.

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
