Pleasant Valley Reservoir Fish Report

Pleasant Valley Reservoir - Bishop, CA (Inyo County)

by Tom Loe

It has been awesome down here. The "mother of all stink bait tournaments" is over on 3-15 and if they don't burn it down like a group of contestants did last year, (a huge section of the wild trout area was destroyed by an illegal campfire) Ķis a good choice for tubers and the dry/dropper enthusiast.

Stillwater nymphing on the drop-off near the west side has been very good using chironomid patterns #16-18. Streamers fished at 10 feet will get you into some of the nice planted trophy fish (if any are left from this blood, guts, and beer Armageddon like event). Focus on the launch ramp section towards the inlet.

The small creek area has been the finest kind for dry dropper tandems. You will also see a good show of caddis and bwo's for some fun on top.
