Owens River Fish Report for 8-25-2009
Lower Owens River Fish Report- Update by Eric hein 8-25-09
Owens River - CA
by The Trout Fitter Staff
After a good portion of summer seeing low (150 cfs) flows on the Lower O, LADWP has decided to change that. Flows have steadily risen over the past 2 weeks and are currently at 302 cfs, as of 8-25.
Water temps are in the mid to upper 60\'s but still fishable. During times of changing flows the challenge is to find where the fish have moved to.They gotta eat,the question is where.
Fishing Conditions and Hatches: Good
With the flows being slowly brought up, fish are a little unsettled, but are still eating. Nymphing and streamer fishing has been more productive. Female Tricos ,micro caddis,and midges start around 6a.m.About 8 or 9 the Trico spinner fall will go off.
Late morning into early afternoon there are small mayflies on the water as well as craneflies. Caddis again as well as male Tricos ,midges, and aquatic moths throughout the afternoon/evening.
