Fly fishing has improved here a bit lately

Owens River - Section 3 - Upper (above Crowley) - Eastern Sierra, CA (Mono County)

Fly fishing has improved here a bit lately but no where near what it should be this time of year because of low flow ( 50 or so cfs compared to about 70 ) and a virtually non existent hopper season. Been getting 10 to 12 mostly Rainbows with a Brown here and there up to 14”. Right now primarily going with a submerged E.C. Caddis stripped and playing with a Sheep Creek Special fished the same way. If we get some typical bigger Fall Browns and Rainbows moving up from Lake Crowley I’ll add bead head buggers and nymphs to the mix. Fingers are crossed anticipating the
Nov.-Dec. Rainbow run.

Good luck on your next fishing adventure. If you have a question. a report in our local fishing area or have a photo of your catch, send it to [email protected]. Hope to see you on the waters. Good fishin' and tight lines.
