Upper Owens River Fishing Report

Doug Rodricks

Report Date:


We have started fishing on the Upper Owens River for the larger fall rainbow and brown trout. The fish are spread out throughout the river now, with new fish consistently making their way into the river system. These fish tend to migrate in the dark, so they may be in one area of the river one day and a good distance up river the next. You must find them to catch them, and we know where they like to hold. 

It is still drive in access until we see our first measurable snowfall this fall and winter. At that time, we will be deploying our snowmobile fleet to continue to access the river. If you have never had the chance to fish to these large trout, it is a very special experience. These are hard fighting trout that test the best anglers and teach beginner anglers quickly, how to utilize the rod to land them. Pair this with an expert guide who knows the river well and can provide you with vital information on winter fishing techniques and you have the makings of a successful day of landing these fish of a lifetime.
