Flows on Upper Owens is 111 cfs

Doug Rodricks

Report Date:


Flows at 111 cfs here. Look for bug hatches in the warmer periods of the morning. You can nymph up some great numbers here, with the occasional larger fish in the trout mix. A few grasshoppers still lingering around, so the windy days are still getting fish to rise on a hopper casted into the right spots. Work the undercut banks for that nice fish that is holding by its lonesome.

Best Flies: Stimulator – 12, 14, 16; Crystal Copper Tiger Midge – 16,18; B100FB – 14, 16, 18, 20; Spruce a bu dark and light; Loeberg Mallard Silver; Loeberg Guinea Silver, Crystal Midge Pupa Black – 18; Crystal Chironomid Emerger Copper – 16, 18; Broken Back Copper Tiger Midge – 14,16,18.
