Guides Hint: I know the recommend ations haven't change in 8 weeks. If it works don't fix it. On warmer days, the average angler that leaves the store is returning 3-4 hours later with 9-12 fish landed, one over 19 inches, at Upper O, Hot Creek, and Lower O with the Res a close second. The quality of the fishing this Winter has been uncanny.
