June Lake Area Report

June Lake Loop - June Lake, CA (Mono County)

by Doug Busey

Those nice Fall days we were enjoying in October ended with the arrival of November and some Winter type weather. Temps have dropped along with a few inches of snow on the 1st and over a foot this past Tuesday creating an earlier than usual shift to fishing the Upper Owens above Lake Crowley and Lower Owens Wild Trout Section below Pleasant Valley Campground. Both locations are open all year, barbless flies and lures only, catch and release. The general fishing season ends after the 15th in the Loop along with most of the Eastern Sierra waters except for some year round creeks which are becoming inaccessible.

Weather: The ten day forecast calls for mostly clear, sunny days and those lower temperatures. Here in June Lake we’re looking at lows from 12 to 20 degrees and highs mid 30s to low 40s. Upper Owens about the same come Friday. Lower Owens will be warmer like always which is a big reason I’ll be spending more of my fishing days there. Those temps to be low 20s for the lows and upper 40s to low 50s daytime.

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.
