Trout Fishing at Owens Creek
Location: Owens Creek
I hit Owens Creek a couple weeks after the stocking, 550 is still closed but you can still take the detour through Cunningham and reach some of the nicer pools. I met a couple of live bait guys who said not to even try the deep hole. I go to the hole armed with joeís flies ... nothing. Switched to a Trout Magnet white color... nothing then I tried the salmon color and that turned them on. I caught 2 rainbows and 3 browns including a 9 inch and an 11 inch. I had about a 15 - 16 inch rainbow on but it came off because he didnít bite it well enough. I saw that someone else mustíve had him and broke his line because he had a flashy spinner in his mouth. Those browns fight hard. Owens is just about done in terms of catching them easily. Iíll go there with a fly rod in a week or two with some mayflys probably.
