Upper Owens Has Been Good For Nymphing

The Upper Owens River has been good recenlty nymphing with the usual flies, but we haven’t seen anything of size just yet. There are some hatchery and wild fish still milling around in the deepest pools, and as the water starts to chill down nightly, these fish will start to transition into fall feeding mode. A few hoppers are still on the scene, and you can still get takes casting them to the banks for a little while longer. Otherwise, nymphs and dry dropper rigs in sizes 16 -20 will get the job done. We will be keeping a close eye out for an early push of larger fish from Crowley Lake moving in here in the coming weeks.
