Owens River Gorge Fishing Report

Jim Elias

Report Date:


Owens River Gorge - 4/15/2021 Flows at 65CFS at Middle Gorge Power Plant - Water is dirty

Rod Size:  #3-#4 Weights

Tippet Size: 4-6X

Dries: Stimulator #16, Elk Hair Caddis #16, Parachute Adams #16

Nymphs: Copper John #16, Prince Nymph #16, Zebra Midge #18, Eurotrash Nymph Brown #14-16, Eurotrash Nymph Olive #14-16, Turbo Midge #16


Flows have been stable here, and it fished very well considering the water clarity when I was there last. Even got a few grabs towards 1pm with just an orange Stimulator. Dry dropper is the best way to fish down here. Keep in mind the nettles are starting to turn green again, so beware!
