Warmer Temps Are Getting Fish to Actively Feed

Doug Rodricks

Report Date:


With warmer temperatures getting the fish actively feeding, the fishing switched gears from opening weekend slower bites to wide open at times. The high pressure mornings produced some fairly good sized midge hatches on Crowley Lake and the fish responded well. The lake has been the best game in town for fly fishing. Water temps quickly warmed up as the cold fronts left the eastern sierra. Snow run-off has started in the late mornings and afternoons and is adding some discoloration to Hot Creek and the Upper Owens River. The East Walker River has plunged to very low flows as of this report, but fishing was decent just prior to the plunge in the deepest water. Lower Owens River is on the rise!
