Target Trophy Trout With Dry Flies

Owens River - Section 3 - Upper (above Crowley) - Eastern Sierra, CA (Mono County)

by Doug Rodricks
(760) 935-4250

A good amount of large snowbows are still in the river and many are now transitioning to an active feeding pattern. You can have some really fun days targeting trophy trout with dry flies in the afternoons. When these fish key in on the mayflies, they really lock in all their concentration on feeding and you can sneak up on them pretty good. Some nice browns have entered the river as well. Try our Hi- Vis Blue Wing Olive in size #16-18 when you see them breaking the surface. 6mm Otter Eggs in Tangerine Opaque, Kiwi Flash, Dead Egg, and Apricot, #14-16 San Juan worm red and Bead San Juan Worm red, #14-16 Level Crystal Leeches, #14-16 Parallel Assassin Dark and Light, and #16 Broken Back Copper Tiger Midge are lighting up the fish!
