The Upper Owens is still running at a low flow of around 70cfs. At this flow it is very easy to get around to the larger holes where you can still find some big trout. Trout seem to be throughout the river all the way up to the private water boundry. Browns and Bows have been caught recently of all sizes. Snow is gone and some places are muddy.. be careful where you drive! Access is unlimited when simply avoiding the mud. For flies try: Chirionocones in red and green in #’s 16-18, Robo Pheasant Tails in #’s 16-20 , Sparkle Trigger nymphs in sizes #16-20, Prince nymph patterns in #14-18, and Z and T midge emergers and larvae in #16-20. On the surface some smaller fish have been slapping the top of the water for smaller Mayfly and Caddis patterns. Thorax BWO’s and Extended body BWO patterns in sizes #18-20 with work for these fish. A small Elk Hair Caddis will also get some action when fished at the right time. Streamers on a sink tip or other sinking method in the larger holes will also get some big tugs. A big black wooly bugger is a good place to start with streamers.
