Lowe Owens River Fishing Report

The Trout Fitter Staff

Report Date:


Water Conditions: Good

Flows are at 322 cfs as of  6/3

Fishing Conditions and Hatches:  Good-Very Good

It is still a little dirty starting about 9 gates down but getting better.  Hatches have been a lot shorter in duration, but the trout don't seem to care.  The one change, late afternoons are picking up with mayflies #16-18 and caddis hatches bringing more fish to the surface. Midges early with Mayflies and Caddis mid-day to mid-afternoon. There is a larger mayfly (#16-18) that is now coming off mid-day all the way to about 6 pm. Dry fly action has been picking up especially in the evening. The flows have been up for over a week now, so the fish have settled down. Just remember what spots the fish were in before and move to find the corresponding water now. Drop offs that were 6" deep are now 1' + and holding fish.
