A Good Mixed Bag of Fish Sizes are Biting

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

Ron Ortiz stuck a more than beefy rainbow early in the morning on the EW! His mission was to catch that fish of a lifetime. Mission accomplished!

Flows now at 24 cfs.  It has become fall/winter time here now for the resident trout.  Some behemoth trout have been pulled out of some really small holding areas.  This time of year, be sure to cover any water that looks deep enough to be holding a fish as it could be a fish of a lifetime.  Lots of juvenile perch have been washing through the pipe and stacking up below the dam area.  A good mixed bag of fish sizes are biting on properly presented flies.  Target the deepest pools and runs and you can be rewarded with some real beauties.  #18 Copper Tiger Midges, #14-16 Parallel Perch, #14-16 Level Leeches, and Assassins dark and light both Parallel and normal have been great patterns to hang. #18 flashback hare’s ears, #18wd 40’s, and SJ worms also working well.
