Fly Fishing with Midges and Caddis are the imitations of choice at Hot Creek

The Trout Fitter Staff

Report Date:

Water Conditions: Great the flows are at 29cfs as of 10/28.

Fishing Conditions and Hatches: Good but fish very small Midges and Caddis for best results on the sunny days and fish your Baetis patterns on overcast or cloudy days. Caddis still around too, but not in the numbers we were seeing last week! Fish at the near bank, and the lanes in between the weeds.
