The Lower Owens is flowing at a very high rate of over 500cfs! Few spots are fishable if you know where and how to enter the water. Slow foam lines will yield fish when nymphed deep off an indicator or with a tight line czech style. Trico clouds are seen early morning with little response from the fish on top. Under the water the fish are gorging on the emerging nymphs. RS2 Tricos, and Grey RS2s are being eaten in sizes #18-22. Hares Ears, PT’s, Trigger nymphs and Robo PT’s will also get fish. Extreme caution when wading here!
