A real winter storm made its way through the area bringing feet of snow to elevations over 7000'. The storm systems started very wet with rain in most areas gradually turning into a drier snow. The combination of high winds and rain during the storms left some solid ice behind which made snow clean up quite challenging for most. We are not due for anything significant in the way of snow for a few weeks now, so it will be a cold but pleasant and enjoyable Christmas week in the high country.
The Upper Owens and Hot Creek are accessible now by foot. We are snowmobiling in to get to the fish on the Upper O.
The Lower Owens River continues to fish well with a good mix of rainbows and browns ranging from 10 - 17" in length. The milder weather will have the BWO mayflies coming off strong in the next few weeks. The Lower Owens remains perfect for drift boat trips and the fishing has been good on our usual runs.
Hot Creek fishing has really picked up recently with decent fishing at the Interpretive Site and even better fishing in the canyon. We are taking bookings now for Pyramid Lake boat trips in March, April, May, and June. Give us a call, text, or email for more info.
