Hot Creek Fish Report

Hot Creek - Mammoth Lakes, CA (Mono County)

by Tom Loe

The sections that are weed free continue to produce excellent results. Low water levels are customary this time of year and shrink the amount of fishable area due to the protruding weeds that make extended drifts impossible. The BWO hatch should be your focus if you prefer dry fly action. Streamers are often overlooked on HC due to the smaller size of this fishery. If you want to see some of the "Frankentrout" that lurk in the deeper pools here, work a Loeberg or Punk Perch pattern in these sections late in the afternoon. HC remains open year around currently and if the snow does not fall in significant amounts we will have some great fun here this fall and winter.

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
