Flows are 136 CFS. The flows on the E.W. have been outstanding this summer. We are really looking forward to a great fall season on the East Walker. If you are going there anytime soon the water temperatures are the most important thing. You need to get down there early and quit around lunch time. The Bridgeport area has had a hot summer and the summertime flows have been on the low side. This has created a situation where the water is getting into the 70's by late morning. You can still catch fish but it puts a lot of stress on them when it is that warm. Some cloud cover and a few thunderstorms over the past week have helped some for sure. Nymphing with either a dry dropper set-up or under an indicator has been working well. Smaller bugs like Caddis and Midges in size 16-20 are a good bet. Look for conditions to really improve in a couple of weeks when things cool down a bit.
