Just found some more pics from our last trip.. Enjoy
De’ and I were able to get some fly fishing in on the Lower Owens, just outside of Bishop, only to be met with throngs of people, bitter cold winds and an unexpected reservoir spill which nearly ruined the fishing for both of us on Saturday, but not our spirits. Always chasing after the next adventure, we redoubled our efforts starting early in the wild trout section for a few unfruitful hours then headed up to the Upper Owens. What a contrast! Mild temperatures, gentle breezes, partly cloudy skies and easy wading made for a perfect closure to the trout opener weekend. It was nearly a non-stop bite fishing upstream in the seams using a #18 gray crystal zebra midge on 5x tippet. I caught and released 15 for the weekend. Here are a few pics for the masses. Enjoy!

I thought I’d post some pictures of our run up to Bishop, while the video is still being cut…
For those of you that went to the Trout Opener in Bishop, you know it was cold and you probably know the current flows were fast and the water level was high.
That being said Fishing sucked on Saturday; Which was good for us as it weeded out most if not all the other Fisher-Person’s. Like I said Saturday was almost a flop, The exception was when we left the lower Owens and headed off to Pleasant Valley (where we ended our day). Sunday was a productive day with awesome weather on the upper Owens.

Did some fly fishing with De’ earlier this week. What an amazing treasure we have right here in our back yard! Take good care of it and it will last for generations to come.
I caught and released seven beautiful wild rainbow trout using a size 18 olive zebra on 6x tippet with a small strike indicator. I was also successful on a small PT nymph. The takes were quick and subtle so I had to pay close attention and strike on anything that looked out of the ordinary. I basically fished the seams, ripples and runs trying my best to achieve a drag free drift. I saw a few takes on top but not enough to warrant tying on a dry fly.
We spent a better part of the morning up there and our only company was a few gold-diggers on the first mile of the river and an occasional group of hikers further up. I believe we were the only ones fishing on that water. Just the way I like it. The water is still plenty cold and waders are a must, in my opinion. It’ll be a little while till we can start to wet wade again. Here’s a few pics for ya. I took ‘em with my new Pentax Optio W60. It’s waterproof and IMHO, fly fishing approved! Thanks for stopping by.
