Yosemite Fly Fishing Report
Rick Mazaira Reports on 7.23.2015
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!
