Yosemite Fly Fishing Report

Rick Mazaira reports on 9.17.2015

With the recent rains that have brought some much needed relief to our fire situations, and a bit more flow to our rivers as well as a dusting of snow. Let El Nino come! I would again suggest going to the Stanislaus river. It is fishing  well and has a lot to offer with Sonora and Twain Harte near by. The Tuolumne is also doing quite well.

Stanislaus River

  • High Elevation - Watch for thundershower activity - and it’s all about clarity. When these tributaries get off color - your best bet is a bigger  nymph. Also look for the afternoon hatches of mayflies
  • Mid elevations - Look for to middle fork, as it has  fish more activity with  lakes doing well, especially the inlets make  sure you have streamers handy. Cooler nights are making fish more active.
  • Lower - Doing well.

Tuolumne River

  • Upper - has been getting better with the shorter days and temperatures dropping at night. Fishing well in Yosemite and through Hetch Hetchy.
  • Mid Elevation - Fishing best early and watch water temperature.
  • Lower Tuolumne is fishing great!

Merced River

High Elevation is doing well.
In Yosemite it’s really low, not good.
Lower river is closed till Jan 1st.
