Lower Owens River
Wild Trout Section: 26-Feb-08
The flows are at 200 cfs
as of today. However, the flows will be coming back down to around a
100cfs starting tomorrow. The water temperature is in the low 40’s. With
the recent increases in flows the water has been on the cloudy side
making the fishing a bit tough. This should change as the water levels
drop. There has been a baetis hatch about mid afternoon and the fish
have been keying in on them. Blue winged olives and blue duns in sizes
16-22. Nymphing throughout the day has been productive as well. Tiger
midges, wd-40’s, ultra midges and pheasant tails in sizes 18-20 should
do the trick.
Drifting the Lower
Owens River (Laws to Warms Springs Road) 26-Feb-08
With the cooler weather
the fishing has slowed down a bit. The water temperature is about 40
degrees in the morning and warms up to 44. Never the less, the rainbows
are still willing to take a streamer that is stripped slowly. Some of my
favorites are spruceaboos, hornbergs and zoo cougars. There has been a
baetis hatch mid day and some of the fish have been keying in on them
For those of you that
have drift boats there is good news. The Inyo County Sheriff is starting
to crack down on the people that block the putins and takeouts on the
river. If you encounter this problem or are hassled about putting your
boat in or taking it out, call the Inyo County Sheriff and file a
report. The rivers is there for all to use equally not just a handful.
