Run Off Has Subsided

Rush Creek - June Lake, CA (Mono County)

by Doug Busey

Now that the run-off has subsided Rush is much more fishable. Use salmon eggs and nightcrawlers on an 18” to 24” leader. Thomas Buoyants, Panther Martins, Kastmasters, and Rapalas in deeper runs for lures. Fly folks try streamers, buggers, dries like caddis flies, gnats and mosquitos. Maybe a San Juan Worm with a nymph or egg dropper or try out a Hopper dropper.

Good luck on your next fishing adventure. If you have a question. a report in our local fishing area or have a photo of your catch, send it to [email protected]. Hope to see you on the waters. Good fishin' and tight lines.
