Hot Creek Fish Report

Hot Creek - Mammoth Lakes, CA (Mono County)

by Tom Loe

The conditions remain very good here despite heavy pressure. HC is still fishing well for those who can execute a good drift. Build your leaders 9-11 feet and keep the tippets 5X for a tandem rig, 6X for a dry. I do NOT like manufactured tapered leaders here (or anywhere for that matter) and you need to build your own "ropes". Caddis, mayfly, and midge adult's #18-22. Nymphs and emergers #18-22. Olive crystal emergers, tiny PT's, WD-40's, and scud patterns will get you grabs here.

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
