Pleasant Valley Reservoir Fish Report

Pleasant Valley Reservoir - Bishop, CA (Inyo County)

by Tom Loe

Disappointing. The rez level is way too high for good inlet fishing. There have been several areas in 2009 that have had bastard conditions during what is normally a good time of year to fish. It needs to drop three feet for good access at the inlet. The small river section is fishing ok, but has been heavily fished over the holidays. Dry/dropper bead head rigs are best here.

Freeze tubers are tugging on decent numbers, but they are working for them. Full sinking type 4&5's used with "strymphs" and streamers trolled along the drop-off on the west side near the launch ramp and south of the first big bend near the inlet are good locations.

If you would like to go fly fishing with Sierra Drifters give them a call at (760) 935 4250 and for more information visit their website
