San Joaquin River Fishing Report

San Joaquin River - Middle Fork (Mammoth Lakes) - Mammoth Lakes, CA (Madera County)

Fishing remains pretty good here; but look for water levels to get skinny as morning air temps begin to fall making flows drop to low levels. I like to fish hi-vis mayfly; or caddis patterns with a bead head dropper nymph like an Assassin, FB PT, or tiger midge. The riffles are best fished with high riding dries like stimulators, parachute ant patterns, foam beetles, & attractor adults. I suggest you have a stout wading staff even though the flows are down. The skeeters are ravenous down here this summer, don’t forget then deet.
