Drift the Lower Owens River

We offer  professionally guided year-around drift boat access to the Middle Owens River near Bishop Ca. Established in 1997, Sierra Drifters is the pioneering guide service to offer drift boat trips down the Middle Owens River.  We are without question the most experienced guide service to offer these trips.  Sierra Drifters master guide and owner Tom Loe is  a  U.S.C.G  licensed captain and a 45 year veteran of fishing these waters.  We will outfit you with all necessary fishing equipment…you need only supply a current fishing license and your personal gear.

“The Fish Magnets”

Want to solve the fly fishing mysteries of Crowley Lake or Bridgeport Reservoir? Charter one or more of our 21′ to 24′  custom bay boats to access these trophy trout still waters filled with rainbow, brown, and cutthroat trout.  Whatever your pleasure, we can create a great fishing adventure…1-4 anglers per boat. Our flats boats can accommodate corporate or large groups in style and are by far and away the finest guide boats in the Eastern Sierra! The lakes open the last Saturday in April each season, and boating access ends on October 31st.
