Hot Creek Fishing Report

Flow Rates and Water Conditions:

Water Conditions: Good, showing a cfs of 9 on 1/2

Flows are not accurate due to icing , OR , they just rebuilt the shed at the weir so it might be down for some time.

Fishing conditions and Hatches: Fair-Good

Besides the midges we are also seeing some sporadic mayfly hatches starting around noon. The problem is that there is no consistency from day to day, one day great dry fly action the next day you won't see a rise. Fishing has been good and if you drive down into the canyon it will be less crowded. If you're looking for dry fly action the interpretive site is the most consistent but the canyon can have some excellent surface activity late morning. The road is snow free and the trails have some snow on them.
