East Walker River Fishing Report

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

by Tom Loe

It has been Alaska like winter temps in this region. Flows here are reading 26 cfs as of today. This is a small drop in water level and combined with the cold air temps the fish can be sluggish. Get those flies right in front of their noses to get bit. A good amount of snow has fallen here. Good news for the river and Bridgeport Reservoir. Looks for a flow increase if the winter storms keep moving through. Eggs, SJ worms, Assassins, Serendipities, Copper John’s, and Midges are good searching patterns this time of year. Go with larger sized flies on top and smaller ones on the bottom if you choose to fish a two nymph rig. For example: #14-16 as your top bug and #18-20 as your lower.

This fishery is open year around below the Bridgeport Reservoir dam to Nevada State line. Open year around in Nevada also.
