60 cfs. is fun to fish on the East Walker

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

by Tom Loe

How long it will last is the question??? This storm will not hurt the cause friends! You will still find most of the rascals bunched in the deeper pools, however they will not be stacked on top of each other. The section called the Miracle Mile located directly below the dam will be the best area to fly fish for sure right now. Fall is Trico's and Baetis. Have mayfly nymphs and adults in the #18-22 range. You may also want to spring for a few "crayfish" patterns. The bigs will munch on these as a rule and although you may not get into any numbers, what ya do get to chomp on Mr. craw-daddy will be substantial! Fish them as nymphs-tie it as an upper in a tandem rig. THREE X to this pattern gang.

If you would like to go fly fishing with Sierra Drifters give them a call at (760) 935 4250 and for more information visit their website www.sierradriters.com.
