Walkers present a challenge

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

by Jim Reid

The flows on the East are still in the 20 cfs range and though we haven't been getting very many reports from the river most of the ones we are getting are not too bad. Key things to think of when heading down there are to focus on the deeper pools and runs, be sneaky so as not to spook the fish and try to get your drifts in sync with the river flow. If you take your time and get all your ducks in a row you should be able to pull out some nice fish. There are a few stand-out patterns that seem to be working the best which include: Fox's poopah (green), san juan worm, LaFontaine's deep sparkle pupa (green), rainbow warrior, mercury midge and micro mayfly. The West is running very low and clear right now but there are still some nice fish being caught. Spin fishing in the mornings and evenings has been pretty good with panther martins and rooster tails, during the day go with bait like salmon eggs and crawlers. Fly anglers are still having success with dry/dropper rigs, hoppers, stimulators and humpy's on top and pt's, zebra midges and micro mayflies underneath. www.kenssport.com (760) 932-7707
