Upper Owens Fishing Report
Owens River - Section 3 - Upper (above Crowley) - Eastern Sierra, CA (Mono County)
by Tom Loe
Some larger fish have found their way into the river this month. With the continuation of cold nights, this will keep the fish in the river as they move upstream to choose their spawning locations. They are spread out currently and the real large numbers of migratory fish will show up once the water temperatures get cold enough. Solid midge and mayfly hatches have been taking place in the afternoons. The section from the Benton Crossing Bridge down to the fishing monument is now closed. Flows are now at 87 cfs. The cooler water has prompted the fish to feed in the deeper runs now and target nymphs and egg imitations. Look for rising fish in the late-morning and afternoons as the daytime temperatures climb. They will be found in the slower eddys around the bends in the river.
