The Upper Owens is open and travel is easy. There are a few muddy areas in the deep ruts but otherwise dry. Flows are down and temps hover around 40 degrees. Fish can be picked up in various areas on the usual bugs. #16-20 Copper Johns, PT’s, Robo PT,s and various mayfly nymph patterns can be used with success. #18 Brassies in Red and the Copper have taken a few fish recently. Attractor nymphs such as Prince Nymphs in similar sizes are also taking fish. Streamers of your choice have been seducing the trout as well.. Flows are optimal at 88 cfs. A few spawners are finding thier way into the river. This fishery will pick up as the spring weather warms up the water, and the trouts blood..
