Upper Owens is Still Fishing Well

Doug Rodricks

Report Date:


The Upper Owens River is still fishing well for large migratory rainbow trout. There are still some quality fish to be head but they are spreading out more along the river with slightly higher flows this time of year. You will find the fish now scattered throughout the river from Long Years to the Benton Crossing Bridge. Water clarity will be stained in some areas due to run off entering the river. Fishing along the undercut banks and deeper pools are giving up some ice fish for those fishing assassins in dark and light, San Juan worms, copper tiger midges, pheasant tails and egg patters.
