Challenging conditions on Walker

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

by Jim Reid

The East is still running at 43 cfs right now and we've been getting some pretty decent reports from down there this past week, from the Miracle Mile section, down below the bridge as well as in Nevada. The Mile section seems to be producing some very nice rainbows though not too many browns lately, from the bridge to Murphy's Pond has been producing some nice browns but not too many rainbows. The Nevada side, the Rosachi and especially the Sceirine have been producing mostly browns with a few rainbows scattered in. There are just a handful of flies that anglers have been using lately including: San Juan worm, dark lord, copper john, fox's poopah, buckskin caddis and rainbow warrior. Water temps are still hanging in there in the high 60's and low 70's and the fish are still very healthy. The West has been a little hit and miss this week though it did kick out a nice 8 pounder on a Rapala. The key up there is to put on your hikers and cover some ground in search of the deeper pools where fish are hanging out. The water is pretty low and very clear so you'll need to be sneaky and you'll probably be hiking past some water that is just too thin to hold fish. Fly anglers should be packing hoppers, beetles, ants, humpies, stimulators, copper johns, pheasant tails, prince nymphs and hare's ears. (760) 932-7707
