Eastern Sierra Fishing Report

Owens River - Lower - Bishop, CA (Inyo County)

Here's your Eastern Sierra Fishing Report 11-6-23. Weather has turned to the colder side this week as a cold front sweeps through bringing some light snowfall and heavy wind to the area. Temperatures will be cooler this week.
The Lower Owens River flows have started to climb at a steady rate and are slated to continue to increase to 500 to 600 cfs through the month of December. This will put a damper on the fishing conditions until the river stabilizes. Prior to the increase the drift boat and wade fishing was good down here, with a good mixed size of rainbow and brown trout.
Hot Creek continues to produce some nice fish and the brown trout are now in pre-spawn mode.
The Upper Owens River has been fishing well both above and below the bridge. Fish are starting to move up and down the river as they prepare for the coming winter.
Flows on the East Walker River have plummeted down to 20 cfs which is unfortunate given the river is still open until November 15th. Prior to this drop fishing was excellent here with good numbers and some monster trout.
