Lower Owens River Fish Report

Owens River - CA

by Tom Loe

I must say, it is as if I am waiting for an active volcano to erupt. Flows remain extremely low in the wild trout section for this time of year. The drift boat sections are not too bad either. We have not been guiding this area due to the hot weather and the thought of a major flow increase while on the river. I spoke to a SD veteran that fished the LO in the wild section and he reported having a great time with NO ONE around during a late afternoon "lip ripper" that gave him double digits to hand all on caddis dries! The "water lords" are behaving strangely this year me thinks.
