Upper Owens River Fishing Report

Doug Rodricks

Report Date:


The fish are getting harder to catch up here as more anglers take to the water. Some days it can get pretty crowded and others will have miles of open river to fish. The fish are moving around daily here, so spend some time fishing to find them. With pickier fish comes the importance of perfection in your presentations and fly selections. This is where a quality fishing guide can come in handy. If you want to spend more time catching fish and less time trying to figure out the puzzle, give us a call and we can show you the way. Our team of experts will take you to the most productive areas and maximize your fishing time while showing you intermediate and advanced techniques that most anglers lack for this type of fishing. We have plenty of dates available for the rest of the month and for March.
