The Upper Owens River is still showing us what the Eastern Sierra is made of by letting us extract #18-24″ full finned trout on a regular basis this entire winter, and now into the spring! The fish continue to be spread throughout the system and fishing has been great on most days and spectacular on others. Fly Anglers are spoiled as they leave the Upper Owens realizing sometimes people travel halfway around the world to have fishing like this in a small river. Attractor patterns reminiscent of salmon and steel-heading designs are definitely working well. I’m not going to say we have the only patterns in the shop that catch these fish or you have to have our patterns for success, but, we sure have some of the exact right stuff if you want to stop in for some advice. Streamers sunk and stripped correctly without spooking the river will also get the streamer enthusiast giggly happy with a strip into five pounds of on-fire trout is a drug not easily found! Call the shop for more info or a guided fly trip up to some of our favorite water. Our guides are full time on the water guides and understand river etiquette.
