Fly Fishing Lower Owens River December 2011


The Lower Owens is sticking to a great flow of 104cfs. This allows any angler to move about the river freely. Nymphing has been great here with good numbers to hand. A few more rainbow trout have been coming to hand this December with some great specimens.  The usual suspects for flies are still working; PT’s, SuperFlash Pheasant Tails, Sparkle Trigger Nymphs, CDC BWO emergers, Ticket Czech nymphs, and Zebra, Tiger and all sorts of Poly wing emerging midges all is sizes #18-20.. Sometimes you can get away with a #16 PT variation on the top fly of your nymph rig.  Stay tuned for some clockwork BWO and dry fly
