At times, Piru Creek is flourishing as one of the best tailwater fisheries this side of the Sierra Nevada. Other times, Piru is in serious pain. One problem is water levels are dependent on nearby Pyramid Lake, which at times lets out flows that measure as little as two cubic feet per second and as much as 40 cubic feet per second. The two extremes are both harmful and detrimental to the stream’s resident trout and aquatic life. This fly-fishing chapter describes the "where, when, and how" for fishing in this area. It includes a full-page map and information on the known hatches, suggested equipment to use, the best flies to use, season, limits, nearby accommodations, and camping.
