California Fish Guide

Someone is always hungry in Hot Creek. It is only up to us fly anglers to fish it correctly to extract these wild trout. Water is still clear and low with mininum weeds and snags. Hatches these last couple of weeks have not been thick. Weather seems not to affect Hot Creek as one can sink down some baetis/midge imitations and catch fish in the windiest and unstable weather. Baetis Emergers are getting eaten vigoursly in #’s 18-20, T-Midges and Poly Wing Midge Emergers are also on the menu #’s 18-20. PT’s in small sizes (#20) and Red Midge Larva imitations are also flies of choice, all in sizes #18-20.
