The fly fishing on the East Walker is starting to pick up some. Cooler weather associated with the fall season has helped tremendously. The water is low at 22 CFS but it is cool enough now to not be so much of an issue. Don't expect the flows to change much over the next few months. Grasshoppers are fewer and fewer with the cold overnight lows and fish are really keying in on smaller bugs. Baetis and Midges are the way to go for Nymphing. It is still worth fishing a dry dropper rig but most of the takes are going to be on the nymphs. Fish are still really spread out on the California and Nevada sides of the river. Take some small flies and get good drifts. Wear neutral clothing and take your time approaching runs and pools. The East Walker should be a good option for fishing over the next couple of months.
