The Lower Owens River continues to flow at usual winter flow rates with clear and cool water.  These conditions are perfect for us fly angers to take full advantage of the conditions! The usual Midge, Baetis top water feeding action has been continuing to happen during the mid morning to mid afternoon depending on the section of the Owens once chooses to fish. Once again, reading the water is crucial for success.  Fish are highly selective in what they eat.  Caddis and Midge Larvae,  BWO Emergers and Nymphs.  These are fished in sizes #16-20. Mayfly adults come off around noon or the warmest moments of the days.  Fish various adult Baetis patterns when this happens; thorax BWO, natural BWO’s,  para BWO’s ect.  Fish these in #16-18 and sometimes #20.
