The Lower Owens River is now flowing at an excellent rate of around 200 cfs. Fish are now feeling like they can move about the river system a bit more freely. Longline – Czech nymphing conditions are prime, and we have been teaching a lot of indicator – less fishing. Drifting is perfect at these flows, and an excellent way to familiarize yourself with the Lower Owens River system. Caddis and Baetis are really still the main players in the drop offs and under the foam lines. Green Caddis Worms and Emergers in creams and greens in #14-16, Baetis patterns from PT’s to Bubblebacks and Soft Hackles are the popular choice among the scaled crowd right now. Fish these in #16-20. Dry action can be found periodically throughout the day. Stalcup Caddis and Thorax BWO patterns are a necessary thing to have in your box as well in the event of frenzied Dry Fly surface action. We will see what surprises the river holds for us this season!
