Fishing Has Been Fun Here
Hot Creek - Mammoth Lakes, CA (Mono County)
by Doug Rodricks
The fishing has been really fun here. We have had what looks to be our final run in with winter weather for now and the storms that came through slowed the run off and made for some good conditions. With summer now closing in you can expect to see much more bug activity, and the caddis hatches are close. Finding the good holding areas for the majority of trout is the key. Water temps will start to warm back up with some coming high pressure. If you are nymphing go small in the canyon in the I- site area. Best flies this week have been #20-22 Para midges, #16-18 BWO’s, , and Otter eggs and SD Crawlers in red. #18 Gold FB Pheasant tails are also hot.
This is a year around fishery with special regs in place. We walk and wade guide here.*Doug Rodricks, Doug Dolan, Hans Grotewold, and Devin Preston are under permit from the Inyo National Forest Service to guide Hot Creek.
