Owens River - CA

Pretty good fishing here lately. The flows and water clarity are excellent. The fish are on the small side with the average rainbow running about 10 inches, but they are eager to hit the caddis and may flies that are blanketing the water most days. The afternoons have been very breezy and I suggest you make an early start this time of year. Plenty of skeeters here unfortunately, so make sure you are protected.

As the sun gets higher later in the morning switch from a dry/dropper bead head or dry fly rig to a tandem, well weighted nymph set up under a strike indicator. PT's, tiger midges, Broke Back midges, are all good choices #16-22. There are some really nice browns holding in the deeper pools as well so don't be surprised if you hook into a larger model while nymphing.
