Good fishing below 395 on Rush Creek

Rush Creek - June Lake, CA (Mono County)

by The Trout Fitter Staff
(800) 637-6912

Water Conditions: Fair as of 9/26 flows are at 35 cfs above Grant Lake and at 38 cfs below.

Fishing Conditions and Hatches: Good we are getting reports of good fishing to be had down below 395, but it's very technical fishing. Lots of bushwacking, wading up to your chest and very wary fish. If you can get to the productive holes without scaring every fish away and make an excellent presentation without snagging your fly on overhanging brush, you will be rewarded. Mainly fishing small hoppers and caddis in the late afternoon as the sun goes behind the mountains.

Recommended Flies:

Elk Hair Caddis #18, Royal Wulff #14-16, Kaufman Stimulator 16, Parachute Adams #16, Yellow Humpy #16, Royal Coachman #16, Rubber Leg Stimulator, Fat Albert #14, Chernobyl Ant #14

NYMPHS: Copper John #18, BH Prince Nymph #18, Stocker's BH Lightning Bug #18, Birds Nest Olive #18, Nitro Caddis Tan #16, Fox's Caddis Poopah #16
