Hot Creek is not fishing as well as we usually see on Hot Creek

Hot Creek - Mammoth Lakes, CA (Mono County)

by Tom Loe

Another location off its game due to low water. The weeds protruding above the surface in many of the "spots" on HC are making life difficult for most. Dry fly fishing is the best way to get looks using small trico mayfly patterns or hoppers and caddis in the afternoons. There is very limited water to nymph in at this time- scuds, midges, crystal olive caddis larva, and birds nest patterns are good choices if you get a pocket or hole.

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
