East Walker River Fish Report

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

by Tom Loe

Flows here are now at 50 cfs. This place has not stopped giving up fish. These rascals have been eager to take flies as they get ready for the approaching winter. Go with 4X tippets in the faster water sections and you can get away with 5X in the slower water. Redundant drifts can produce some real beasts and some pools and runs are holding good numbers of fish. Best flies have been Crystal Eggs, #20 Serendipity, SJ Worms, Crawdad in Olive and Tan, #16 Punk Perch and Balanced Punk Perch, #20 Brassie, and #18-20 Copper John’s in original and dark green.  Book your trip here. This fishery is open year around with special regulations.
