With the recent storms, huge amounts
of water have come down, closing Hwy 140, and mucking up all the
rivers. So this report is a good thing for California and fish, but it
makes fishing hard for us.
- High Elevation- Watch for thundershower activity- and it’s all about clarity. When these tributaries get off color- your best bet is a small streamer & bigger nymphs.
- Mid elevations- The middle fork has
fish more activity with lakes doing well, especially the inlets make
sure you have streamers handy.
- Lower- Doing well stripers are starting to show up.
Upper has been getting a lot of pressure on Hwy 120- walk away from the trail heads to find un-pressured water
Fishing well in Yosemite and through Hetch Hetchy.
Mid Elevation- Fishing best early and watch water temperature.
Lower Tuolumne is fishing great!
Fishing well at elevation- very off color and flows are up.
Afternoon dry fly activity is increasing and bass are in the mid to lower elevations! Not a bad option in the heat!
