Default The Lower Owens

I caught a bunch like this guy in the 12 to 16 inch range. Awesome. The Gorge was wall to wall near the reservoir so I tried the lower O on Sunday - not a soul.

Nice Brownie!!! We went a week and a half ago and caught more than we could count in the gorge above PVR. Were now hooked and will be going back, Want to try some spots on the lower O but have no idea so looks like its another scouting trip I just hope the rain and snow will hold off... Early reports looks like we are not going to need the cooler to keep the beer cold when we get back from a day on the river .

We tried the gorge where you talked about, but it was packed. I talked to some other folks with fly rods and they said it gets harder as the season progresses since people take home the stockers. The Lower O looks better and better. Plus, just up the hill there is hot creek and the upper O.
