Lower Owens River Fish Report
Owens River - CA
by The Trout Fitter Staff
Flows are holding steady around 174cfs as of 5/15. It is always a good idea to check the flows before fishing the Lower 'O'.
Fishing Conditions and Hatches: Good
Fishing has remained solid even with the ebb and flow of water. The Mayflies have tapered off with caddis taking over. The best fishing has been mid morning with drowned pupa and emergers. If you fish drys you may want to trail an emerger . Streamer fishing is still good when the bugs are down.
