Hot Creek flows are above their historical average but the fishing is still good

Hot Creek - Mammoth Lakes, CA (Mono County)

by Tom Loe

The flows are well above their historical average for this time of year. We are seeing some run-off due to the warm temps above the inversion layer making Mammoth creek higher than usual. Been pretty good overall down in the canyon with a decent midge and mayfly emergence on the warmer days. You will still find more consistent action in the deeper pools while nymphing near the bottom. SJ worms and a small midge, PT, birds nest, or broken back will get you looks.

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
