Flow Rates and Water Conditions

Water Conditions: Fair, showing 1 cfs as of 9/23

Remember these are the flows just below 395 on Mammoth Creek

Fishing Conditions and Hatches: Fair to Good     

Seriously, please show respect to other anglers and don't overcrowd. Best to drive by and if there aren't more than a few cars head on down, lots of cars, head on down....to the Owens. The dry fly fishing has picked up, especially after 10 am. The fish are eating an emerging small black caddis, they will also take pupa patterns but why not have fun with the dries. There are still a few Tricos around first thing and the Baetis are starting to emerge late morning. This time of year there are few new wrinkles but that should change in the next month with Tricos and caddis fading and BWOs, Craneflies and October Caddis showing up. With the colder water the weeds are starting to die off but I still tell my clients that a 4 second drift is average and finish with an aggressive pickup, you will hook fish you never knew existed.
