Here's your Eastern Sierra Fishing Report 4-7-23. The month of March has been anything but kind to anglers in the eastern sierra. We have not been doing any guiding until now due to road closures and high flows that had made fishing very tough. We are now fishing on Hot Creek and the Upper Owens River again with some nice fish still holding in the river. The cutthroat trout should be replacing the trophy rainbows any day now as we slide into April. There is still fence high snow on the Upper Owens and Hot Creek access is tough on foot. The BWO mayflies are here and providing the fish with some great afternoon sustenance. It's a great time to get that trophy rainbow on a dry fly when conditions are right. Crowley Lake is still ice covered over 85% of the lake, but the warmest weather of the winter is around the corner to help speed up the thaw. Prepare for flooding next week in fields and along creek and river banks.
