Here’s whats up for the weeks’ conditions and reports; with some slightly cooler thanaverage temps this week our rivers and streams are calming down a little. Hot Creek has been the locals favorite for a couple weeks now, the high water is now running clear so sight casting to big fish has been the order of the day, as well as searching for fish in the deeper runs with nymphs and indo’s. Look for the slow water and chances are you will find the fish, don’t ignore the shallow stuff. Good caddis in the morning (18’s olive or tan) as well as midges ( tiny). Midday you might get lucky and see some little yellow stones and some big mo fo PMD’s, hopefully the fish will begin to key into this hatch as the temps warm up! Caddis and midges in the evening has been producing fish as well, the fishing is good all day-if you can brave the afternoon winds. Crowds have been very light, take advantage of this early season blessing-after peak run-off, pre summer crowds and heat, this is Hot Creek at it’s best.
