Yosemite Fly Fishing Report

Arrow Thin Left Icon

Rick Mazaira reports on 10.15.2015


Our clinic on Dynamic Nymphing was a great success! Thanks to George Daniel and all the participants that made it. We will be doing another cycle next year.
With the some weather instability- water  clarity & temperature are the key, if looking at situation with  turbid water- look to try UV treated flies or bigger patterns. Though  not big weather events you still need to be careful with approaches to  water and the conditions you’re in.

Stanislaus River

  • High Elevation- Watch for thundershower  activity- and it’s all about   clarity. Kennedy Meadows has cold nights so it takes a while for the   fish to start moving.
  • Mid elevations - The middle fork has  fish more activity. Look to use big stone fly nymphs and multiple fly rigs.
  • Lower - Doing well.

Tuolumne River

  • Upper has been fishing well with lots of great
  • Fishing well in Yosemite and through Hetch Hetchy.
  • Mid Elevation- Fishing well as nights are getting colder fish are moving out of reservoirs.
  • Lower Tuolumne is fishing great!

Merced River

  • Fishing well at elevation- high elevation tributaries are too low. Dry fly activity is increasing.
  • Lower Merced is closed till Jan 1, 2015
