Here's your Eastern Sierra Fishing Report 10-10-23. Fall is here, and with it comes cooler overnight temperatures and very pleasant days in the mid-60's to 70's in Mono County and 70's to 80's in Inyo. Water levels are as good as they have been in the fall in many years. Moving water creeks and rivers are in prime shape currently and the trees are turning before they begin to drop their leaves. The fish are also transitioning into fall mode, with brightly colored browns and fish relocating to new areas of Crowley Lake and Bridgeport Reservoir as water temperatures begin to change.
Crowley Lake is starting to pick up as the algae tries to hold on for a big longer, but the water is very fishable now compared to 2 weeks ago when the goo was thick.
Bridgeport Reservoir has had most of the fish move out of the Buckeye, Robinson, and Walker channels and now moving into deeper water around the lake.
Some fish in Crowley have migrated from McGee Bay over the north end, but both areas are still producing fish.
The Lower Owens River flows have now reduced to 320 cfs and we are getting closer to wadeable levels in the Wild Trout section.
The East Walker River is fishing very well with a great flow this time of year at 200 cfs.
The Upper Owens River fish have scattered some, but there are some large rainbows and brown still lurking in select areas.
Hot Creek is in great shape with a perfect fall flow and some great fish in both sections.
