A wet rainbow trout is held up at the upper Owens River with mountains in background

The Upper Owens River fly fishing has been a delight to fish this late Summer! Even though we are seeing cooler temps during the nights there are still some grasshoppers around keeping the fish tuned in.  Flows are low and clear all the way to Crowley with minimal weeds. A few fish have been making their way up from the lake, nothing huge… yet…  Fish Caddis and Mayfly nymphs and dries. Streamers and hoppers are definitely worth throwing out there depending on conditions. Wind can blow hoppers and terrestrials in the water! Make sure and check the regulations as they change around this time of year.. It is always barbless above the Bridge.
