Owens River Gorge STM Fly Fishing Guide Service in Bishop Ca. Our Fly Fishing Guide Service in Bishop California is proud to offer services in the Grand Canyon of California, the Owens River Gorge. Sometimes referred to as the Middle Owens, this section of water is known for its wild and willing browns! The Gorge fishes more like an alpine stream where a dry fly is readily smacked hatch or not. This section of river is surrounded by vertical cliff wall from 200-300′ feet high.
To access this section of water the angler must be willing to take a decent hike in, adding to the adventure. The water within consists of classic pocket water, riffles, runs and some pools spread through the entire gorge. Turn over a rock and one finds caddis, stoneflies, midges and various mayflies. On a windy afternoon many different terrestrials find their way down over the cliff walls and into the water. Truly a unique part of the Lower Owens.
