We have not fished it for over a month, just been too darn good on the Owens. Flows are not bad for winter, 25 cfs and with the warmer days nymphing the deepest holes can be productive right below the dam. The Bridgeport area can get wicked cold this time of year with the temperature inversion being amplified by cold and clear windless mornings. Sub-zero temps are common currently so if you want to fish it I suggest look at the Nevada section which is much warmer and lower in elevation. Otherwise the 11-4 period is best.

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 www.sierradriters.com.
