The Fishing Will Only Improve

Owens River - Middle - Bishop, CA (Inyo County)

Flows have been holding steady as they have come down to fall and winter levels.  Current cfs is 222.  We are fishing in all our usual sections of the river and enjoying pulling streamers to the resident trout here.  Our bigger trout have been coming on small to medium streamers with many takes happening toward the end of the retrieve.  Fishing the transition zones has been the hot ticket to fooling these fish during this time.  These are fun trips and often times we float all day down the river and seldom see another angler.  We have been using moderate sink tips and pulling #10 Loebergs and #8 Spruce-a-bu’s back to the boat with good results.  The fishing will only improve as we move along into the coming winter months too.  We can fish up to 3 anglers per boat and offer half day trips (4.5 – 5 hours) or full day trips (7 hours) to meet your needs.
