Grasshoppers in the afternoon rock on Hot Creek

Tom Loe

Report Date:

Fish small mayfly and midge adults for the morning hatches. Weeds are an issue now, you gotta stay in the wider channels and shorten the drifts, lengthen the leaders. Water conditions remain great for this time of year and will be good throughout September for sure. Pretty fun watching the rascals zoom out from under the weeds to whack a large hopper on the top! This is one time where a splashy presentation does not reduce your chances for a grab. Keep the drag off your drifts & as little fly line on the water as possible on Hot Creek or you ain't getting any love friends.
