Yosemite Fly Fishing Report

Rick Mazaira Reports on 7.14.2016

Things are Fishing well on the West Slope of the Sierra!

This week I am glad to say that the west slope is fishing well. Middle Fork of the Stan is looking great above Twain Hart- look at Herring Creek and the inlet to Lyons!

Mokelumne- The river has more of a bass/ striper presence as you go away from the Dam. The heat will wear at you but a good early drift.


Stanislaus- Rafters are in full swing so watch flows.  South Fork is doing well.   Yellow Sallies, and Hare’s ears. Middle Fork is good at elevation. The  Hwy 4   corridor is still improving.


Tuolumne- Run off is  the issue  the middle     section tributaries like the South  fork are doing well.  Subsurface   caddis & midges work well.  Especially just right out  of the National   Park boundary. The meadows  are fishing well. Just  make sure you don’t put your inner tube in the water.


Merced-  El Portal is doing good! Look  to the S. Fork as a good  southern   spring tributary to dry fly fish. Lower  Merced lots of Pike  Minnows,   Suckers, and when you catch a rainbow  with    a tracking tag on  it   know it is a  rescue fish and keep it in  the   water.
