On the East Walker you will find most of the fish in the deeper water by the dam

Flows are down to winter levels already, and they will continue to fall unfortunately. The cooler weather has brought much better water conditions with a more consistent bite. Most of the fish will be stacked in the deeper pools below the dam. Due to the low water levels you will not see the mega mayfly and caddis hatches this fall, but I would still have a good selection of #18-20 BWO or Trico adults handy. I like smaller bird's nest and PT's this time of year while nymphing. With short water there are limited sections to fish a streamer, however if you get a deep pool do not forsake an opportunity to chuck a bait fish imitation for a shot at a trophy brown.
