Pleasant Valley Reservoir Fish Report

Pleasant Valley Reservoir - Bishop, CA (Inyo County)

by Tom Loe

There was a lot of debris near the inlet after the flows first went up but conditions have improved a bunch lately. Tubers have got into some really nice holdover fish around the launch ramp, and near the dam. Concentrate your efforts while there are shadows on the water, and fish the drop-offs. Keep your streamers and still water nymphing rigs 10-15 feet deep. PV gets warm quick this time of year and the fish tend to go deeper if there is not a lot of flow coming from the inlet at the powerhouse.

Veteran SD client Eric Carlsen got into a hog rainbow using the Kelly Bundy Spruce-A-Bu near the launch ramp. I hear the fish was 23 inches and tore him up!
