Lower Owens Fish Report

Owens River - CA

by Tom Loe

Flows have been holding steady at around 200cfs. The infamous "green goo" of last report is starting to recede and the fishing from the drift boat is improving daily. On days without the windy conditions there are some great dry fly opportunities to be had. Spruce-a-bu's, Loebergs, Seal Buggers, and Agent Oranges are all producing. Nymphing the bends and deep-water straights are getting some fish to the net as well. We do not normally see the flows stay this steady for this time of year, so it is a good time to get out on one of our drift trips while it lasts. You can check out the LADWP real-time flow data at the top of the fish'n conditions page. www.sierradrifters.com/fish.htm
