Gorge Fish Report

Owens River - CA

by Tom Loe

It is difficult to pack a keg, patio chairs, and a boom box down in here so this area will be pretty much left unharmed after the BJ Tourney. This is prime time for this area and you can find solitude, a bunch of eager wild browns, and see if you still have the ability to keep up with a Mountain Sheep!

Little golden stones #16 are fun to use as patterns here with a smaller caddis or mayfly of your choice as the trail fly around two feet back. Otherwise you can tie on a small bead head tiger or Pt nymph as a dropper to fish the deeper, faster water.
