Hot Creek Fish Report

Hot Creek - Mammoth Lakes, CA (Mono County)

by Tom Loe

It will be interesting to see if it is wall to wall for opening day as in years past, or if the year around change has altered angling behavior here. HC has been open for two full springs prior to the traditional opener and is fishing very well this spring.

The Interpretive Site has been taken out to the wood shed and beaten like a bad step child the last couple of weeks, hike into the canyon for the eager fish. Strong caddis activity as well as BWO's and PMD's will get you into surface activity late morn and mid-day. Dry dropper bead head or emerger rigs are good choices. Make sure your leaders are at least 9 feet in length. Fish 6X tippet, you will get more grabs. Low flows, clean water at the time of this report.

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
