Some Nicer Fish Have Moved into The Upper Owens

Doug Rodricks

Report Date:

Some nicer fish have moved into the Upper Owens River recently and are beginning to spread out along the river. We have been connecting with some nice rainbow trout from Crowley Lake that entered the river recently and in the last few weeks. The population of fall and winter rainbows will continue to increase here as we move deeper into fall and closer to winter. We will continue to drive in to access the river until we get some snow here. Then we use our snowmobiles to gain access to areas that no longer allow for drive in access. Egg patterns, Pheasant Tails, San Juan Worms, and Leeches have been connecting with most of the larger fish, and if you fancy dry fly fishing, there are some good opportunities for some of the smaller fish taking Blue Wing Olive mayflies in the later morning and early afternoons.
