Fall Fishing Mode
Hot Creek - Mammoth Lakes, CA (Mono County)
by Tom Loe
Flows at 7 cfs now with weed growth prevalent. Fall fishing mode has the fish looking down when its cold, so try egg imitations and small nymphs. Different day to day here as more weeds hit the surface and begin to choke up the open water. Same story here as the bug hatches will start late in the morning or into the afternoon. #18 mayflies, #18-22 midges, #20 Brassies, and egg and SD worm patterns have been getting some serious looks and takes from the resident trout.

Look for rising...... Read More
