Predicting Good Fall Fishing
Owens River - Middle - Bishop, CA (Inyo County)
by Tom Loe
Flows have finally dropped to decent levels as of this report. Current cfs is 386. We will be running drift boat trips here shortly now and are predicting some good fishing as we make our way through the fall months. We have 17′ Willie drift boats ready to go and get you to some of the best holes and runs on the river which are inaccessible by foot. In the afternoons we are often times treated to some great dry fly fishing when the conditions are right, and the rest of the time we fish with sinking tip lines and streamer patterns to get the resident trout here to bite. We can fish up to 3 anglers per boat and offer half day trips (4.5 – 5 hours) or full day trips (7 hours) to meet your needs.
If you would like to go fly fishing with Sierra Drifters give them a call at (760) 935 4250 and for more information visit their website www.sierradriters.com.

Flows have increased to 115 cfs. A few larger than average sized trout in the deeper sections. Target the deeper pools and riffle water that leads into them and you can get into some fun action fishing small nymphs, dry/droppers, and small streamers. #18 Caddis patterns working well. Look for rising...... Read More
