Eastern Sierra Fishing Report 11/15/22

A river running through snow covered banks in the winter.
  A huge winter storm hit the area last week bringing a great start to the winter. It was a fast transition from fall to winter temperatures, as the highs are now struggling to reach the high 30’s during the day, with single digit temperatures along the Upper Owens River. Freezing fog has been making

  We closed out the boat fishing season on Crowley Lake as winter prepared itself to arrive.

  We are now starting to get into fall mode with the weather cooling down. As cold nights set into the 30’s and cool the water, the fish are transitioning into their fall feeding patterns. Daytime temperatures have been very nice in the mid 70’s and fishing has been good on most days. We have

Eastern Sierra Fishing Report 9/10/22

  Hot weather hit the state hard this past couple of weeks. Areas like the coast were even seeing record temps including here in the high country.

  Afternoon thundershowers have been coming through regularly and giving us some good moisture.

The fish have finally moved into the shallow water and are feeding on the defenseless perch fry. The bite is

A mountain background with a large lake.
  Warm summer weather is here, but diurnal south easterly winds are keeping things pleasant in the afternoons and evenings. Fishing on Crowley has been producing very prime quality trout, and most of the fish are hanging deep to escape the warmer surface temperatures. Annual insect and fish activities are looking delayed this year by

A lake in the eastern sierra with the sun setting behind the mountains.
  Some wind here and there from some dry fronts has had the fish a little on the up and down. Some days have been producing some good fishing on Crowley Lake, while others have been on the slow side. The fish we are catching are high quality Crowley trout though. Looks like a little

A couple of fly fishermen hooked up to trout at the same time in a boat on a lake.
  We have had a fantastic last few weeks of the month fishing on Crowley Lake this season. Fish, fish, and more fish have made their presence known in our boat and river nets. It has been a massive amount of cutthroat trout, with some rainbows and a few browns mixed in that have been

Eastern Sierra Fishing Report 5/9/22

A large lake with snowy mountains in far off in the background and a couple boats on the water.
  It was an opening day to remember as warm weather graced the eastern sierra which was in stark contrast to last year at this time where it was snowing, blowing, and cold. Sunday did bring some strong winds to the area, but fishing remained solid, at least on Crowley Lake, which continued to produce
