Tough bite on East Walker

Walker River - East Fork (CA) - Bridgeport, CA (Mono County)

by Jim Reid

The East is still running at 60 cfs, the water temperatures are still good and the fish are still healthy and strong. The fishing has been a bit tough but if you're on your game and get your casts in the right places and your drifts good you should be able to bag a few nice fish. The section below the bridge on hwy 182 as well as the Nevada side of the river are still the most productive areas. There are fish hanging out on the deeper pools as well as underneath overhanging willows and some are hugging undercut banks. Be stealthy and look for fish in close before you get in the water. Patterns to try include fox's poopah, buckskin caddis, san juan worm, tungsten death, silver streak, rainbow warrior, chubby chernobyl, madam x and dark lord. The West is clear and fishing pretty well right now, bait anglers are doing well with salmon eggs and crawlers, lure anglers are using panther martins, thomas bouyants and rooster tails. Fly anglers are doing well with hoppers, ants, humpy's, royal wulff,prince nymphs, pheasant tails, zug bugs and hare's ears. (760) 932-7707
