Fly fishing the Upper Owens River in the winter is fantastic.  It is stunningly beautiful.  Peaceful.  Quiet except for the occasional piercing sound of a hawk.  Clear and very cold this day.  Not another person to be seen.  The fishing went off.

The Owens River runs east of the Sierra Nevada in California, carrying water south out of the mountains. Most of the water is eventually pilfered by Los Angeles, but some portions of it do flow. Here’s that lovely desert river, freezing in December. Also some nice shots of the range towering overhead.

The drive on California State Road 14 through Red Rock Canyon, where Owens River has cut through the sedimentary and volcanic rocks.
