Fishing continues to be excellent on the East Walker. It did slow slightly due to extended high temps but will bounce back quickly with fall nearly here. As water temperatures drop, the caddis activity will slow some but still be the bug of choice until the cold really sets in. Nymph fishing has slowed slightly but streamer fishing has gotten better with the recent unstable flows. Those indicator fishing or high sticking small worm patterns, olive hares ear, caddis pupa, and pheasant tails are still doing very well. Light tippet will help as late summer and fall water levels slowly fall into winter flows. The streamer bite should really be on in the coming weeks as fish become more active in cooler water. For the spin fishermen, aggressive fish are eager to hit small floating/diving rapalas.
