The Lower Owens river has been coming down recently. The flows were down to 300 CFS, but today they have spikes back up to 350 CFS for the moment. In spite of this we have been drifting and wading the Lower Owens for the last week with great success. Foam lines are evident and bug activity is strong with Caddis, Mayflies, and Midges out in the mornings and evenings. Some top water activity can be found as usual in the evening hours. For fly patterns fish green caddis worms of all sorts #14-18, various styles of midge emergers and Midge larvae. Emerging May Fly patterns such as bubble backs, and Poxy backs are also working #16-20. Fish your favorite streamer pattern down deep. In the evening when you see trout rising on the surface can try various styles of small elk hair caddis #16-20, Ext Body and Thorax Mayflies #16-20 and small midge adult patterns throughout the day to pods of rising trout.
