Early Summer 2008 Fish'n Conditions by Tom Loe (7/04/2008)
Run-off from snowmelt has been low to moderate this year. The snow level is high, so it has not caused any significant flooding or horrible conditions in many of the freestone creeks that are influenced directly by this run-off.

Upper Owens is on Fire! by Nicholas Lawton (10/03/2007)
Fall fishing is heating up and there are some large specimens of fish coming to the nets!
East Walker Fishing Report by Nicholas Lawton (8/16/2007)
The East Walker is fishing well early mornings and late evenings but look for a change in the weather pattern to stabalize this fishery as the night time temperatures will drop the water temperatures in the Walker a few degrees and this is what we have been looking for. Good times are ahead!

The indicator's have not stopped going down here at Crowley Lake and a few fish are swimming with a few pieces of jewelry as the bone crushing streamer grabs have been great!
Low Numbers Of Fish Spotted On Big Springs by Tom Loe (2/23/2007)
I scouted the areas recently and was a little dismayed at the low numbers of fish spotted on Big Springs and the Upper Owens River. Hot Creek was a different story in some locations, the East Walkers “trickle” flows are a crime in my opinion and I will not fish here with the current releases (22cfs).
Pleasant Valley Reservoir Fishing Is Good by Tom Loe (1/28/2007)
Tom Loe is on the road again and will be visiting Buz’s Fly Shop Too in Bakersfield on Saturday February 24th 2007 for their “Grand Opening” at the new location. Loe will be doing a Power Point presentation on fishing the waters of the Eastern Sierra as well as some major BS-ing with all in attendance.
Owens River Flow Update by Tom Loe (1/14/2007)
So much for low and consistent flows. The LADWP has once again astonished us all with their YO-YO methods of water management. Flows have been increased to 350cfs and will remain here for most of the week, and then we are told (uh-huh) that they will go back down to 100 cfs.

Lower Owens River Flow Update by Tom Loe (12/29/2006)
After many months of flushing flows the river is finally beginning to recede. The LADWP reports that the flows will stabilize at 150 cfs below Pleasant Valley Reservoir after this weekend. Give it a few days for the fish to reposition and adapt.

Eastern Sierra Trout Season Fishing by Tom Loe (11/06/2006)
The East Walker River and Bridgeport Reservoir are arguable the candidates for the most improved fisheries in this area. Combined with plentiful water and a successful, aggressive trout enhancement program initiated by local businessman and concerned fisherman these fisheries took center stage for the first time in many years.

The “epic” fly fishing has ended for the time being but you may still encounter some fantastic days on Crowley as the conditions remain excellent and the stage is set for the mother of all falls on this premier stillwater
Eastern Sierra River Fishing Reports by Gary Gunsolley (8/09/2006)
The river has been dropped to 450 cfs. This is low compared to what it was. I don’t know how long it stay at this flow but it definitely makes the evening caddis fishing a bit easier. The best times to fish hear are early morning or late evening.
