Running at a very high level of 480+ cfs the Lower Owens is very difficult to fish for most and harder for some.  That being said there are some places to catch fish, especially when they are on the surface eating caddis that have continued to emerge during the DWP water release..There are a lot of places to fish from the bank ..  Only enter the river if you know exactly what you are doing.  There are only a handful of areas you can enter the water and nymph effectively on the Lower Owens at this moment… For dries, an Elk Hair Caddis #16-20 has been doing great..also Tent Wing Caddis patterns and larger CDC patterns are also getting attention in the same sizes. For nymphs try a Purple or standard Prince #16-20, Caddis Worm patterns #14-16(electric rock worm), Baetis Emerger Patterns #18-20 (bubble back emergers, sparkle trigger nymphs) and other various attractor nymphs. Look for foam and slower pieces on this fast running river if you dare 🙂 …..
