It has been Big Fish Bonanza Here on Most Days!

Crowley Lake - Mammoth Lakes, CA (Mono County)

Alexis Lara fished hard and was rewarded with this solid bow!

It has been big fish bonanza here on most days as the trout have moved onto the flats and the river and creek channels. The damselfly nymph hatch has really gotten going now, and you can observe large trout crashing on these little critters throughout the day. The algae has gotten thicker in some areas, and depending on the direction of the wind, you may get a good showing of it where you are fishing. The flies are staying clean currently in these conditions, but watch out for the jellyfish like blobs that gets pushed from the shallows. Good patterns have been our #16 Level Crystal Leech,#16 Parallel Assassin Light and Dark, #16 Parallel Punk Perch,  #18 Crystal Tiger Midge,  and Zebra Midge.

If you would like to go fly fishing with Sierra Drifters give them a call at (760) 935 4250 and for more information visit their website
