Lower Owens River Fishing Report : Bishop CA – 11.17.16

Sierra Trout Magnet

Report Date:


Bishop’s Fly Fishing jewel, the Lower Owens River is currently flowing at a popular flow rate of right around 80-100cfs. This, in turn, opens up the river to many fly anglers who are slightly uneasy wading at the higher flow rates. These current rates will most likely stay low and sweet until next summers runoff. Nymphing the standard, and some modified Lower Owens winter patterns have been very effective. Make sure time is spent reading the water effectively, dipping your flies in the right holes throughout the river. Weeds are thinning out and this has been a very solid fishery producing some beautiful, wild fish. Some surface activity is noted throughout the river system and should become more prevalent as the new season comes in.
