The premiere Wild Brown Trout fishery of California, the Lower Owens River is now fishing like we are used to seeing it in the fall and winter months! Flows are low and clear! Some mornings can be better than later in the afternoon but the persistent angler will always find a reward here! Dry Fly action can be ravenous in some areas and has been happening right around lunchtime. Refer to my posted video below! Mayflies seem to be the main prey floating on top the water at this point. Various Baetis patterns in sizes #16-20 have been taking fish of all sizes. This should only get better as the hatch becomes Riverwide and predictable!
