The Upper Owens is flowing clear, low, and slow.. Things are starting to turn on as the winter conditions put fish of all sizes on the move! Big beasts up from Crowley are starting to be found throughout the system. The clear water just makes it a but more of a challenge but nevertheless the fishing is getting stellar on the Upper Owens River! Fish are taking many well placed Attractor nymphs in #12-18. It is good to have something of colour on the Nymph setup. Streamers of various types and sizes, when well placed will also get rewarded with the tug of your life on the Upper Owens! Stay tuned for many good reports to come off this river as we will be spending a lot of our time winter months hunting the weary and large Trout of this system.
