The Rain & Snowmelt Have Caused Dirty Water Which Is Affecting Fly Fishing at Hot Creek

The Trout Fitter Staff

Report Date:

Water Conditions:
Fair the Flows are at 49cfs as of 10/6.

Fishing Conditions and Hatches:
Fair the water is pretty dirty with recent runoff from rain and snowmelt. It shouldn't take more than a couple of days to clear up. A few of us decided to brave the weather today, and didn't do very well. Mostly Baetis in the water, with some very small midges. We'll try to update again for the weekend.
