Bishop Report Feb 2014 – Day 1

As I said in the previous post, here are some pics from Day 1. Weather was about 45-48 F by noon and trout where feeding on a BWO hatch. Lots of takes on the dry, I was not disappointed.

Bishop Report Feb 2014 – Day 2

I’m posting this a little backwards starting with Day 2.

Fishing in Bishop this weekend was awesome! Dry fly fishing in winter (yes. I said dry), need I say more?!

Fish were rising for a few hours each day and slurping up the hatch so they were incredibly eager to gobble up our offerings.

As an added bonus, no one was on the river. Either due to the cold weather or maybe because it was Superbowl Sunday. Regardless, it was great for the two of us.

On to the fish porn…more pics soon.

Blue River – Silverthorne Colorado

So on our last day in Colorado we decided to hit Blue River, This place was amazing!

The day started out at 56 degrees @ 7am and quickly hit 88 by 10am, water is super clear and very healthy, making for some good size fish!

Bishop Day 2 – What the Hell are we doing?

We got up early and amp’d, only to ask ourselves “What The Hell Are We doing Wrong?”

Waterflows were High and Fast, The Hatch became stagnant.. pretty much killing off all activity we had on Friday.

I think between all ( 5 ) of us, we pulled in or hooked about 6-7 trout.. maybe tomorrow will be better.

Anyhow check out some pics

Fly Fishing the Owens

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!

Bishop Run II

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.

Check out our Pics
