The Upper Owens is still giving up some of her larger residents with nymph and streamer setups. Undercut banks and large backwater holes will hold some very large trout… Possibly the largest trout some of you have caught. Try large streamers in various patterns in sizes #4-8 in dark and light or mixed colors.. SJ worms in pink and reds #8-12, Robo PT’s in #16- 18, Pheasant Tails #16-20, Trigger Nymphs #16-18 and various soft hackles in similar sizes will take fish. A small baetis hatch comes off in the afternoon causing the smaller fish to come to the surface for an hour or so. We do not mess with these fish as we are there to take the larger specimens of the river. To fish a hatch see my report on Lower Owens river and Hot Creek.
