The East Walker can be Great this time of year

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

by Tom Loe

Flows remain great for the fall season but should begin to fall some in the near future. The EW has been a popular destination lately especially in the miracle mile section immediately below the dam. All methods of fly fishing are proving to get grabs currently but you will get a better shot at a trophy fish staying below the surface using nymphs and streamers. I suggest you use patterns that have some red in them this time of year on the EW; they can incite aggressive behavior with the browns. Perch fry imitations are good choices for streamers.

Our main photo shows "Bad Bad Leroy Brown-Badest Brown in the whole damn town!" Veteran Drifter client Todd Francone and Doug Rodricks show off an exceptional East Walker predator.
