600 cfs

East Walker River (CA) - Bridgeport, CA

by Jim Reid

Due to all the rain we’ve had this week and the snow melting the flows on the river have been raised to a little over 600 cfs for now. In spite of that there have been some anglers enjoying lighter crowds and some nice fish! Of course with these high flows we are getting skunk reports but the anglers who are getting their flies down near the bottom have been able to get into some nice browns up to around20 inches and rainbows up to 18 or so this week. Nymphs and streamers have still been the best, they’ve been getting away with some larger sized nymphs lately probably due to the higher flows and this is also helping get them down near the bottom where they need to be. The main thing to remember with these higher flows is to be sure to add as much weight as it takes to get your bugs down to the bottom!
