Rush Creek Fishing Report

Rush Creek - June Lake, CA (Mono County)

by June Lake Chamber of Commerce

Water Conditions:
The flows are down to a dangerous 21 cfs. Rush may not be the best place to fish at these flows. Please make sure and use the best catch and release tactics possible to ensure the fishery stays healthy

Fishing Conditions and Hatches:
F ishing is best in the usual spots. The DFG has been stocking the creek with some good 10-12 inch bows. The primary stocking is below Silver Lake and it seems the fish stay in that area. Like most of the small creeks in our area stealth and a great first cast are very important. The fish are spooky and the flows are low so most fish will only give you one chance. Fishing downstream to 395 require some bushwacking, but can be rewarding with some small wild browns. Hatches: small Golden Stones, Baetis Mayflys, Caddis and Midges

Recommended Flies:
Lots of attractor style patterns work well here with a dropper fly like a PT, Hare's Ear, Micro Mayfly etc. -Dries- #14-18 Elk Hair Caddis, #14 Yellow Stimulator, #14 Yellow Humpy, #14 Royal Wulff, PMD patterns from #14-16
-Nymphs- #14-18 PT's, #14-18 Hare's Ears, #16-18 Olive Micro Mayfly, #16 Mercer's Stone, #16 olive CDC caddis emergers, #18 Brook's Hot Creek Caddis emergers, #20 black, grey and olive (3 different colors) WD-40's, #20 Zebra Midges ,Prince nymph,San Juan Worm,and Copper Johns all in #12-14
