Yosemite Fly Fishing Report

Arrow Thin Left Icon

Rick of Yosemite Outfitters reports on 7.15.15

With the recent storms water levels are holding and staying relatively cool. With most of our local waters experiencing good fishing. Our back country high elevation streams and lakes are fishing very well- as always please be aware of the late afternoon showers that could lead to lightning
Now from North to South…

Stanislaus

High Elevation- Pressure on the weekends around camp sites and trail heads   make for slow fishing, hike away from crowds and you’ll see a   dramatic   change in fish activity. Again watch for thundershower   activity.
Mid elevations - The middle fork has fish more activity with lakes doing well, especially the inlets make sure you have streamers handy.
Lower - Great for warm water species

Tuolumne

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

Merced

Fishing well at elevation- Afternoon dry fly activity is increasing and bass are in the mid to lower elevations! Not a bad option in the heat!

Cheers,
Rick
