Lower Owens River - Gear, Tackle and Flies

Fly Line:
We recommend either a 5 or 6 weight floating fly line for fly fishing the Owens River for both
the rainbow and brown trout fishing. You may prefer a sinking tip line at certain times.

Fly Rod:
We recommend a 5 or 6  weight fly rod in a medium-fast to fast action that is 9 feet in

Fly Reel:
The fly reel used should be for either the 5 or 6 weight line should have a very good drag.
We prefer disc drags but there are other types that will work as well.

Leaders should be a size 0X to 6X and range from 71/2 to 12 feet in length. Shorter leaders
are used for streamers.

You should have spare tippet in 0X to 6X.

Waders are needed and we suggest the breathable type.

Wading Boots:
Wading boots are required. We prefer felt soles but the rubber sole wading boots may work

Landing Net:
A landing net is strictly optional but we do recommend using one. You may hook a large
brown trout and really regret not having one.

Trout Flies:
Perfect Flies have proven to be very effective on the Owens River. We have customers who
regularly use our flies on this stream. They closely imitate all the real aquatic insects,
crustaceans and terrestrials that are found on and in this river. We have specific imitations
of all the insects in all stages of life. If you haven't already tried them, we certainly hope you
will. We are confident you will find them highly effective on the Owens River wild trout.
