Much of Hot Creek is unfishable because of the weeds

Hot Creek - Mammoth Lakes, CA (Mono County)

by Tom Loe

Good in the areas without weeds, but it is pretty skinny down here with about 50% of the water un-fishable. Use #18-22 para midges or may fly adults late mornings. The deeper holes will have big numbers of PHD fish that will hit "perfectly" dead drifted, no Under-cator nymphs in the #18-22 range. Stay natural, flash is not good here. We received a fair amount of moisture from the last storm and a decent bump in flows from Mammoth Creek. Looks like a fantastic "Indian Summer" type fall on HC is shaping up.
