Fishing Has Been Pretty Good

East Walker River (NV) - Lyon County, NV (Lyon County)

by Jim Reid

The East is running at 302 right now, the fishing has been pretty good for some anglers and not so good for others. This flow is definitely a bit tougher to fish than when it’s at lower flows, it requires more weight to get your bugs down to the bottom and larger indicators to carry that weight, think “steelhead fishing”. Anglers who are making all the right moves are being rewarded with 5 to 15 fish days with most of the fish ranging from about 14 to 20 inches. Nymphing has been the best but the streamer action is coming on strong right now. They’re liking bright colored streamers the most and they’re still on the san juan worms pretty good.

Recommended Flies:
Rainbow warrior, silver streak, micro stone, poxyback stone, Darth baetis, pheasant tail, prince, aggravator prince, dark lord, radiation baetis, prince nymphs, san juan worm, zebra midge, top secret midge, flashback emerger, poxyback stone, micro stone,  sculpzilla, dali lama, zuddler.
